Seventeen-year-old Merritt Centennials defenceman Dane Birks can be forgiven if he was a little tired in class this past week.

The Grade 12 student at Merritt Secondary School ex-perienced the thrill of a lifetime in slightly less than 48 hours as he was the only BCHL player invited to a special evaluation camp put on by the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, June 5 at the Bell Sports Complex,
From another article

"Listed heights and weights can always be questionable, but Birks went from being listed at 6'1" 165 lbs. last season with Creston Valley of the KIJHL, to 6'3" 190 lbs."

Also his profile on eliteprospect (who has him at that 6'1, 165lbs) says he's committed to Michigan Tech for 2015-16... 2 more years of Junior A? Even MacMillan who was under developed only played one year outside of his draft year in the BCHL. But Birks is an August birthdate I think, so that makes him one of the younger guys in the draft.

these guys say he's a 2014 commit. they cover M. Tech exclusively so I'm guessing they know what they're talking about.
