There where undrafted players from the North who where invited over higher rated players from the OMHA and GTHL. Because each area needs to fill a certain 'slot' of players, some players dont get the opportunity (not that the camps have much to do with the final rosters anyways).

The U17 camps at one point where good for GM's to get a chance to see every player, but now that the Draft has been moved up, im not sure what the point is. I also never understood why 8 months of live viewing where thrown away for a weekend of play by evaluators who never saw the players before that weekend. Its a backwards system thats due for re-invention/retooling.
