Guelph Storm defenceman Ryan Merkley will represent Canada for the third time in his young career.

The Mississauga, Ontario native had an impressive selection camp in Calgary, registering four points (one goal and three assists) in three games including an incredible play on Day three (Below). Following the conclusion of Hockey Canada’s selection camp, Merkley was named as one of 22 players for Team Canada in the 2017 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament from August 7-12 in Breclav, Czech Republic, and Bratislava, Slovakia.

The OHL’s Rookie of the Year previously played for Canada at the 2017 Youth Winter Games in Lillehammer, Norway, as well as with Team Canada Red in last year’s World Under-17 Challenge.

Merkley, appeared in 62 games for the Storm last season, registering a team leading 55 points (12 goals and 43 assists). The standout rookie claimed the Storm’s Top Scorer Award, Tony Camilleri Memorial Playmaker Award, Wellington Motors Rookie of the Year and the Fan Club Award.
