Attack prospect Kaleb Lawrence led all scorers at Hockey Canada’s under-17 summer development camp this past week in Calgary.

The six-foot-five forward notched four goals and three assists playing for Team Blue in three scrimmages.

Lawrence was selected by the Attack with the 42nd-overall pick of the 2019 Ontario Hockey League Priority Draft.

The Orleans, Ont. native racked up 26 goals and 33 helpers playing with the Ontario Hockey Academy Maverick Maroons last season.

“He’s got incredibly, incredibly, good hands. His issue, obviously, will be his feet. If his feet catch up with his hands I would be embarrassed to say what would happen,” Attack GM Dale DeGray said at the time of the selection.

Deni Goure, the Attack’s first-round pick, notched an assist and was a teammate of Lawrence on Team Blue.

Ethan Burroughs, who the Attack selected with the first of two second-round picks in 2019, recorded a pair of assists in three scrimmages playing on Team Green.

Owen Sound native Carter Garvie backstopped Team Red posting a goals-against-average of 5.29 and save percentage of .833. Garvie was selected at pick No. 241 by the Saginaw Spirit.

In all, 112 Canadian Hockey League prospects attended the camp, including 46 from the Ontario Hockey League, 41 from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and 25 from the Western Hockey League. The group counted 64 forwards, 36 defencemen, and 12 goaltenders. The players are vying for one of 66 final roster spots that will compete at the 2019 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, held Nov. 2-9 in Medicine Hat, Alta., and Swift Current, Sask. Hockey Canada will announce its final rosters in late October.
