Urban recorded 13 solo tackles

CALGARY -- Hockey Canada begins an overhaul of its under-17 mens program this week by bringing together more than 100 of the countrys best 16-year-olds for a new camp. Blank USA Soccer Jersey . Along with 54 coaches, equipment managers and medical staff, the nine-day camp in Calgary will be "massive," according to Scott Salmond, vice-president of hockey operations at Hockey Canada. "You can imagine how many trainers we need," Salmond said. Ninety-six skaters and a dozen goaltenders from across Canada will descend Tuesday upon the Markin MacPhail Centre, which houses Hockey Canadas headquarters, an Olympic-sized rink and three NHL-sized surfaces. The horde will be divided into teams. In addition to playing three games, each player will participate in on-ice skills development and learn national-team systems. Their fitness will be tested, theyll be fitted for equipment and theyll participate in seminars on everything from media relations to nutrition. Among the players summoned are Toronto defenceman Jake Chychrun, the first overall pick in this years OHL draft by Sarnia. Defenceman Luke Green of Bedford, N.S., was the first player drafted in the QMJHL by Saint John. Edmonton forward Tyler Benson was chosen first in last years WHL draft by Vancouver. Sixty-six invitees will be chosen to represent their country at the revamped World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. The date of the annual tournament held in Canada has been changed as well as the host countrys participation in it. Instead of five teams representing Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, West and Pacific regions, Canada will enter three teams mixing players from different parts of the country. That means the Canadians will now play in the tournament under the banner of their country, and not their geographical region. "We expect to have a large majority of our players identified at the camp and then go out and scout the remaining few on the bubble once the camp is over and before we name our teams," head scout Ryan Jankowski said. The World Under-17 Hockey Challenge has traditionally been held in late December during its 22 years, but the event will be Nov. 2-8 in Sarnia, Ont. That date was changed to allow young hockey players to go home for the December holiday break. For those major junior teams with players away at the world under-20 championships, the younger players on those clubs will get more ice time, Salmond said. Canadians in the Under-17 Challenge have gone on to play for the under-18, under-20, world and Olympic mens teams. The tournament includes European countries as well as the United States. Ilya Kovalchuk, Rick Nash, Marc-Andre Fleury, Alex Ovechkin, Patrick Kane and Nathan MacKinnon are among the 1,300 NHL draft picks who have participated in it, according to Hockey Canada. The new camp was conceived to give Canadas 16-year-olds intensive preparation for the world stage sooner under the slogan "The Canadian way," Salmond explained. "Our idea is to identify our best players earlier and then to have them play together more often," he said. "When they were in a regionalized model, I think we were still doing a good job of identifying our best players regionally, but not nationally. They stayed in regional model until they came through to under-18s." "Now, we have the best players in the country and they come all to one place. We end up picking three teams that will have no regional bias. Kids from Quebec will play with kids from Alberta. It gives us an opportunity for our best players to be mixed together and for them to play together more often." Of the 108 players summoned to Calgary, 10 are from B.C., 14 are Albertans, two are from Saskatchewan, six are Manitobans, Ontario has 40 and Quebec has 25. Nova Scotia will have nine players at camp and there are two from Newfoundland and Labrador. The provincial branches of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon are not represented among the skaters. "There are some branches who dont have a player coming from the 108," Salmond said. "Part of our job is to work with our branches and those branches who feel like Hey, we didnt have a player this year, we need to have more next year that helps us in our development. It encourages people to do more." Jankowski and four regional scouts compiled the camp roster. The head scout says the camps format will force those players considered the best in their region to compete harder for the opportunity to play in the under-17 tournament. "He is now put out of his comfort zone and comparing himself to players from other areas," Jankowski said. The coaches of the Red, Black and White teams and the six assistants will run on-ice sessions. Jean-Francois Houle of the QMJHLs Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, Sheldon Keefe of the OHLs Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and Dan Lambert of the WHLs Kelowna Rockets are the head coaches. Each province will send their 2015 Canada Games coach to the Calgary camp to be a guest coach. One other reason for the program overhaul is Canadas under-20 mens hockey team finished fourth at the last two world junior championships after 14 consecutive years in the medals. Canada needs to find and develop the right players to get back on the podium, Salmond said. "Everything in our organization is performance-related," Salmond said. "Our goal is to be the best and to win gold medals." Klaas-Jan Huntelaar Jersey .By Firas Momani By Alfredo Galvan By Satwant GillBy Conor Stinson"I made this a couple months ago using Photoshop to use as my iPhone background. Pepe Reina Jersey . Louis.Bochy said before Sundays regular-season finale against San Diego that he felt comfortable with Bumgarner or Jake Peavy on the mound. But given Bumgarners success the last few years, he said I dont think there was any question who you pitch that game.The Baltimore Ravens looked to Canada on the final day of the NFL draft. The Ravens selected Virginia defensive lineman Brent Urban, a six-foot-seven, 295-pound native of Mississauga, Ont., in the fourth round, No. 134 overall, Saturday. Then in the fifth round, Baltimore took Winnipeg native John Urschel, an offensive lineman at Penn State, at No. 175 overall. A third Canadian, Notre Dame receiver T.J. Jones -- another Winnipeg native -- was taken in the sixth round, No, 189 overall, by the Detroit Lions. Defence was Baltimores emphasis early in the draft, taking Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first round Thursday night before selecting Florida State defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan in the second round Friday night. And on Saturday, the Ravens opted for Florida State safety Terrence Brooks with their first third-round pick before selecting Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore with their second pick in the third. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was surprised that Urban was still available in the fourth round. "Hes a guy when I first watched him thought second round at the latest," Harbaugh told the NFL Network. "Hes had a couple of injuries and things like that but you talk to this young man and hes a great guy. "Hes a hard worker, big, strong. He fits our defence. This guy is a guy who fits our scheme perfectly, a big, strong guy who fell to us so we couldnt be more happy with him." NFL draft guru Mike Mayock agreed. "Not only do I like the pick but he fits exactly what they do," he said. "The five technique is probably his best position, a 3-4 defensive end in a 3-4 defence. "I think hes a big, strong kid. Hes stout. In addition to playing that five technique, he could probably move inside also. So I like him and I think theres some significant upside there." Urban, 23, started eight games at defensive tackle with Virginia last year before suffering a severe high ankle sprain but still led all NCAA Division 1 defensive linemen with nine pass knockdowns. He was invited to the Senior Bowl but couldnt play in the game due to injury. Not surprisingly, Urban has been compared to Houston Texans star J.J. Watt, one of the NFLs top defensive lineman, and came into the draft projected as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme -- three defensive linemen, four linebackers. Urban was selected in the second round of last years CFL draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but elected to return to school. This marks the second straight year the Ticats have lost a highly touted defensive lineman to the NFL. Hamilton took Calgary Dinos defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh first overall in the 2013 CFL draft but the native of Peace River, Alta., signed wiith the Carolina Panthers as a free agent and spent all of last season on injured reserve after undergoing back surgery.Miguel Ibarra USA Jersey. A converted hockey player -- he played AAA as a bantam in Mississauga -- Urban took up football his first year of high school at Lorne Park Secondary School before deciding to concentrate full-time on the sport. After high school, he attended Virginia and redshirted as a freshman. He served as a backup defensive end for two seasons before starting at tackle in 2012. Last season, Urban recorded 13 solo tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and a sack. He was invited to this years Senior Bowl but was limited to just two practices because of his right ankle sprain. The major knock against Urban heading into the draft has been injuries. Urban underwent surgery in February and didnt participate in the NFL combine, where the top draft prospects undergo testing under the watchful eye of league coaches, GMs and scouts. Urban expects to be ready to participate in training camp come July. After being redshirted, Urban suffered a torn left ACL that limited him to just three games in 2010. He appeared in all 13 games in 2011, recording 15 tackles and 2.5 tackles for a loss but did undergo wrist surgery after the season. Urban started all 12 games at defensive end in 12, registering 20 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss and two sacks with a fumble return for a TD. The six-foot-three, 313-pound Urschel was born in Manitoba but played football at Canisuis High School in Buffalo, N.Y. He was a team captain at Penn State and earned all-Big 10 honours his final two seasons there and was one of 15 offensive guards invited to the 14 NFL combine but could also play centre as a pro. But he is much more than just a football player. He earned a masters degree in math and received the Campbell Trophy as U.S. college footballs top football scholar athlete. The six-foot, 195-pound Jones had his most productive season at Notre Dame in 2013 with 70 receptions for 1,108 yards and nine touchdowns. And he heads to the NFL with a definite pro pedigree. Jones late father, Andre, was a defensive end at Notre Dame who also played for the CFLs Winnipeg Blue Bombers while his uncle, Philip Daniels, is a former former NFL defensive lineman who played for Seattle, Chicago and Washington over 14 NFL seasons whos currently Washingtons director of player development. Also, his godfather is former Notre Dame flanker Raghib (Rocket) Ismail, who helped the Toronto Argonauts win the Grey Cup in 1991. Jones was born in Winnipeg before moving to Georgia, where he attended high school. As a true freshman in 2010, he started seven of 12 games with Notre Dame and had 23 catches for 306 yards and three TDs. Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Cheap Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
