Hay says Bulmer would get an invite

10/21/2011

The head coach of the Canadian World Junior team is hoping Brett Bulmer returns to the Kelowna Rockets.

Bulmer played in his 7th NHL game Thursday night with the Minnesota Wild.

If Bulmer is returned to junior, Don Hay says the 19 year-old will be considered for a spot on Team Canada.

"He's definitely on the radar. We've talked about him obviously. We have talked about all of the underage's playing in the NHL.  They are on a list. We hope he (Bulmer) does come back to play for Kelowna and then has an opportunity to go to the World Junior training camp in December to try out for the team.  He doesn't have a spot, nobody has a spot on the team, they have to come to the Christmas camp on December 10th and go through the process."

Hay says players like Bulmer, Ryan Nugent Hopkins and Brett Connolly, who are all playing in the NHL, would recieve an invite in December.
