Ian Scott could once again wear the Canadian Maple Leaf.

The Raider goaltender was one of the first players named to the Canadian national under-18 hockey team’s pre-tournament camp roster for the upcoming world championships.

The veteran of two WHL seasons who played his best hockey of the season in the final two months of the 2016-17 campaign finished with a 12-31-3 record, a goals against average of 3.69 and save percentage of .895. Scott posted two shutouts, both against the Kootenay Ice.

The Calgary native was the top ranked WHL goalie by NHL Central Scouting for this June’s draft. Scott was also the second highest ranking goalie amongst North American prospects.

Scott played for the Canadian U-18 team last August at the annual Ivan Hlinka tournament, and was on the gold medal winning Canadian team at the 2015 World Under-17 Challenge.

The Canadian pre-tournament camp takes place in the Toronto area. The World Championships in the Czech Republic begin April 13.
