Devils prospect Damon Severson has been invited to attend Canada's National Junior Team selection camp, beginning Dec. 12 at the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence in Etobicoke, Ont.

Severson, 19, was one of 25 players named in Monday's announcement from Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League.

A defenseman with Kelowna (WHL), Severson was one of just nine Western Hockey League skaters chosen. He's second among Rockets blueliners with 21 points (6g-15a) in 22 games.

The Brandon, Manitoba, native was New Jersey's second-round selection, 60th overall, in the 2012 Draft.

The roster includes two goaltenders, eight defensemen and 15 forwards. Canada’s final roster for the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship in Malmö, Sweden, will include 22 players, and must be finalized by Dec. 25.

“Hockey Canada is looking forward to an extremely competitive camp in December, as we look to assemble a team that will make all Canadians proud,” said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s senior director of men’s national teams and hockey operations.

“This is a first step towards naming our roster for the IIHF World Junior Championship. We look forward to the camp getting underway.”

Canada will be coached by former Devils head coach Brent Sutter, who served as an assistant coach during the country's silver medal-winning effort at the 2010 WJC. Before becoming an NHL head coach, Sutter coached the national junior squad for three years, winning gold in 2005 and 2006.

Currently the head coach, general manager and owner of the Western Hockey League's Red Deer Rebels, Sutter went 6-0 in North Dakota in 2005 and 6-0 in Vancouver in 2006.

The U.S. will announce its selection camp roster on Wednesday.
