SWIFT CURRENT, SK – The Swift Current Broncos are proud to announce 2004-born goalie prospect Reid Dyck has been invited to Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp. This year’s camp is a virtual edition that runs from June 9-12.
Dyck, from Winkler, Man., was the Broncos fourth pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft, 45th overall. This past season he played for the Pembina Valley Hawks U18 program posting a 17-3-1 record with a .931 save percentage and 2.26 goals against average.
Twenty-three goaltenders were invited to the camp this year; five from the under-20 level, six from the under-18 level and 12 from the under-17 level.
“The Program of Excellence goaltending camp is a great opportunity to bring together the top young goaltenders in the country and assist with the development process for these athletes,” said Scott Salmond, senior vice-president of national teams for Hockey Canada. “Despite the unique nature of the year’s camp and the switch to an online delivery for our programs, we believe all 23 goalies will benefit from the world-class instruction as we continue to prepare for a new season.”
Online sessions will include goaltender development, mental and physical performance, planning for short-term competition, environments for success, embracing the role of a back-up goaltender and more.
