WINNIPEG, MB – The Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) is excited to host the 5th annual MJHL Prospect Camp held July 20-24, 2022 in Winnipeg. The 2022 MJHL Prospect Camp will feature three divisions of players who will be invited to attend the event. Players born in 2004 and 2005 who are currently protected by MJHL teams will feature the Premier division of the camp. Meanwhile the Draft Prospects division will feature 2006-born players who will have recently gone through the 2022 MJHL Draft (June) identification process by time the camp begins. Last but not least, new to the camp will be the U16 Futures division with the top 2007-born players in the province also attending the MJHL Prospect Camp.
MJHL Prospect Camp Divisions:
- Premier (2004 & 2005)
- Draft Prospects (2006)
- U16 Futures (2007)
The main goal of the camp is to prepare these players on and off the ice for what it takes to be successful in the MJHL and what it takes to advance to NCAA, WHL, U Sports, and eventually to pro or the NHL. The camp activities will emphasize the elements these players need to focus on to transition successfully from elite minor hockey up into junior hockey.
Successful camp events were held in 2020 and 2021 despite limitations and constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however plans are underway to host the first full-scale camp since 2019 providing added excitement and enthusiasm for MJHL organizers.
What’s included for each Prospect:
- 4 games (full games)
- Off-Ice Testing Combine
- Meals provided by Boston Pizza
- Player Development Seminars/Presentation
- Special guests generally include experienced individuals from NCAA, WHL, U Sports, AHL, NHL
- Opportunity for prospects to showcase themselves to scouts from all levels in attendance
- Enhanced high-performance exposure including individual video & statistical analysis reports
- Professional support staff on hand for all games
- MJHL performance apparel, jersey and socks
The 2022 MJHL Prospect Camp will be held at Seven Oaks Sportsplex in Winnipeg.
