Schenn, Glennie on the Rock

Brandon Wheat Kings' forwards Brayden Schenn and Scott Glennie are in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.

The duo are two of 44 players that'll take part in the Canadian Junior Team's four-day Development Camp at the Mile One Centre, with both players being part of Team White.

Schenn (left) was part of Canada's junior team that won silver in his hometown of Saskatoon at last year's World Junior Championship while Glennie was denied a chance to crack the final roster because of an injury suffered at December's Selection Camp in Regina.

Schenn is one of only two players that'll be on the ice this weekend that played with Canada's silver-medal winning team at the 2010 WJC.

Ryan Ellis and Taylor Hall have elected not to participate in the development camp while Jared Cowen will be in attendance but is not available for contact due to his recovery from mononucleosis.

Calvin de Haan is the other player invited that played on last year's squad.

Glennie (right) is one of four Manitobans at the camp, joining Oak Bank product Quinton Howden of the Moose Jaw Warriors and Winnipeg products Calvin Pickard of the Seattle Thunderbirds and Cody Eakin of the Swift Current Broncos.

The team will conduct practices over the next three days before playing intrasquad games Friday and Saturday.

WHL Notes...the first outdoor game in WHL history will be announced on Wednesday. The contest will take place February 21 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary and feature the Hitmen and the Regina Pats. The game will piggyback on the NHL outdoor game between the Flames and Montreal on February 20...the Lethbridge Hurricanes have appeared in front of Lethbridge city council and formally present a letter of intent to bid on the 2013 Memorial Cup. The WHL will hear the official bids in October 2011.
