Calgary, Alb. - (Calgary, Alb.) ... Notre Dame sophomore center Riley Sheahan (St. Catharine's, Ont.) is among a group of 41 hockey players selected by Hockey Canada to attend Canada's National Junior Team Development Camp this coming August in St. John's, Newfoundland. All participating players are candidates for the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2010 to Jan. 5, 2011, in Buffalo, New York.

Sheahan is among a group of 17 defenseman and 24 forwards born in 1991 or 1992 invited to the camp with goaltenders to be selected following a Hockey Canada goaltending camp to be held in Calgary. He is one of three players on the roster with ties to the NCAA as he is joined by Minnesota-Duluth defenseman Dylan Olsen and Harvard forward Louis LeBlanc. Of the remaining 38 players, 37 play junior hockey in Canada while one is playing in the United States Hockey League (USHL).

From this group, 35 players will advance to Canada's junior team selection camp in December where head coach Dave Cameron and his staff will select the final 22 players that will represent Canada in the World Junior Championships.

In his freshman season at Notre Dame, Sheahan played in 37 games for the Irish, scoring six goals with 11 assists for 17 points while recording 22 penalty minutes. The 6-2, 200-pound left-shot center had three power-play goals in 2009-10 while seeing duty in all situations for Notre Dame as one of the youngest Division I players in the country.

Born Dec. 7, 1991, Sheahan is eligible for this year's NHL Entry Draft and is currently ranked 22nd among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting's Final Draft Rankings and is projected as a first round draft choice in next week's draft. He attended the NHL's Draft combine held in Toronto at the end of May.

Sheahan's invitation to Canada's National Junior Team Development Camp gives Notre Dame five players invited to their countries junior camps as he joins USA invitees Kyle Palmieri (So., Montvale, N.J.), Stephen Johns (Fr., Wampum, Pa.), Bryan Rust (Fr., Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) and Jarred Tinordi (Fr., Millersville, Md.) who will attend the U.S. Junior Team Development Camp from July 30 to August 7 in Lake Placid, N.Y.
