Victoria, BC- The Victoria Royals are pleased to announce that defenceman Scott Walford has been invited to attend Hockey Canada’s Under-17 Development Camp, which runs from July 29th to August 4th in Calgary, AB.

Players selected to Hockey Canada’s Under-17 program will compete at the 2015 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, which is scheduled for October 30th – November 7th at a location yet to be determined.

The 6-0, 185 lb defender took part in the 2015 Canada Winter Games last February with Team BC and collected three assists and four penalty minutes in six contests.

A native of Coquitlam, BC, Walford spent the 2014-15 season with the Okanagan Hockey Academy Midget Prep Team (OHA) of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League. Walford played in 28 games with OHA and collected 21 points (6g-15a) to go along with 20 minutes in penalties. Last season, Walford also appeared in his first two career WHL games for the Royals.
