2. In theory, I believe McDavid could be invited to the U20 Summer camp, as HC protocol again says that an underager has to attend the Ivan Hlinka camp unless they have already played for Canada in a U18 event. Obviously now McDavid now has, its just up to HC. Personally, id rather see him help Canada win a real event. If there was something like the Super Series last year, my mind would change
I don't see why they need a "protocol". Just take it case-by-case. If a guy is good enough and eligible at whatever level, just play him.
