Sarah and Amy Potomak among the invitees to Hockey Canada evaluation camp in Calgary

A pair of Aldergrove sisters are hoping to land spots in their respective Canadian rosters.

Sarah and Amy Potomak earned invitations to Hockey Canada evaluation camps in Calgary. The camps began yesterday (Thursday) and run until Aug. 16.

Sarah Potomak, 17, is participating in Canada’s national women’s development camp while 16-year-old Amy Potomak is at the national women’s U18 team selection camp.

Both camps have 43 players attending and the players are competing to make the final 23-player rosters.

Those teams will face their U.S. counterparts in three-game series in Lake Placid, New York.

The Canadian development team faces the U.S. Aug. 19 to 22 while the U18 team faces the U.S. Aug. 20 to 23.

Sarah Potomak is off to the University of Minnesota in the fall where she will skate for the Golden Gophers on scholarship. She had previously attended the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy in Kelowna. Amy enters Grade 11 at POE and has also committed to Minnesota.
