McDonald is a goaltender with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Charlottetown Islanders and a second round pick of the Calgary Flames in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Last season, he posted a 28-22-0-4 record while registering the second-best save percentage in the league

Welsh, who was drafted 37th overall in the second round of the 2015 QMJHL Entry Draft, is also property of the Islanders.

Fitzpatrick was the first goaltender taken in the 2014 QMJHL Draft when he was selected fourth overall by the Sherbrooke Phoenix. He posted a record of 13-11-0-3 this past season.

Nine goaltenders in the under-20 age category (candidates for Canada’s National Junior Team), seven in the under-18 category (candidates for Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team) and 18 goaltenders in the under-17 category (candidates for the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge) will get a chance to work with a number of instructors during the three-day camp.
