The Merritt Centennials announced today that alumus Josh Teves has been invited to the Vancouver Canucks 2018 Summer Development Camp.
The camp runs from July 2 – 5 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
Teves, 23, just wrapped up his third season with Princeton University, where he put up 33 points (7-26-33) in 31 games and was named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team and the NCAA All-Ivy League First Team. He played a key role as the Tigers won their third Conference Tournament championship in team history.
“Although Josh ended up being only a one year player for us, he bought in to our system and development immediately. He’s the type of player who doesn’t take a day off and is always searching for improvement. That type of committment and attitude continues to serve him well as he looks to make the jump to professional hockey,” said Centennials General Manager and Head Coach Joe Martin.
The Calgary native first joined the Cents during the 2014 BCHL playoffs where he went pointless in two games as an affiliate player. Teves added 33 points (5-28-33) in 57 games with the Centennials as a regular during the 2014-15 season. In spring 2015, he was named the recipient of the RBC National Junior A Scholarship.
Last summer, Teves attended the Calgary Flames Summer Development Camp.
