Oshawa Generals forward Ty Tullio has been named to Canada’s World Junior Summer Showcase camp roster.
The camp will take place at Seven Chiefs Sportsplex in Tsuut’ina Nation, Albert from July 28th to August 4th.
In a year without OHL hockey, Tullio continued his development by playing overseas in Slovakia for Liptovsky Mikulas. In 19 games he scored four goals and added nine assists.
A fifth-round draft pick of the Edmonton Oilers in 2020, Tullio – the son of Generals’ owner Rocco Tullio – is expected to have a career year with Oshawa after scoring 66 points in 62 games in 2019-20.
“This is another huge honour for the Oshawa Generals and personal achievement for Ty,” said team General Manager Roger Hunt. “This is a great chance for Ty to show the Hockey Canada brass what he is capable of and showcase how valuable he will be at the World Junior Tournament, and selfishly for us, this also will give him a jumpstart on the upcoming OHL season.”
Tullio represented Team Canada Black during the 2018 U-17 World Hockey Championship, playing in five games.
