DETROIT – Red Wings prospect Jake Paterson will be among 35 players who will participate in Canada’s national junior team summer development camp in August.

The week-long development camp is set to begin August 4 in two cities – Broussard, Quebec and Lake Placid, N.Y.

Paterson, 19, of Mississauga, Ontario, has played the last three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Saginaw Spirit, which is about 1 ½ hours north of Detroit.

Paterson was the Red Wings’ third-round draft selection last June in Pittsburgh. He is one of 14 camp invitees who were drafted last summer. In three OHL seasons, he has posted 46 wins with a 3.45 goals-against average.

Paterson, who was Canada’s third goalie, but did not see action in the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia, was one of three OHL goalies who participated in Team Canada’s Program of Excellence goaltending camp earlier this month in Calgary. Mississauga’s Spencer Martin and Sault Ste. Marie’s Matt Murray were the others in the U20 camp.

Canada’s national junior team will gather in Brossard at the Montreal Canadiens’ practice facility for two practices on Aug. 4 and 5 before travelling to Lake Placid, N.Y., for exhibition games against Finland (Aug. 7), Sweden (Aug. 8) and the United States (Aug. 10).

If Paterson makes the national team and plays in the U20 tournament this December in Malmo, Sweden, he will become just the third Red Wings’ goalie prospect to play in the World Junior Championship for Canada, and the first since Corrado Micalef did so in 1981.

The first Wings’ prospect to play between the pipes for Canada in the U20 tourney was Al Jensen, who helped Canada to a silver medal in 1977 and a bronze medal a year later.
