During the start of August, 2011, the NHLPA selected 42 of the best bantam level (1996) hockey players in Canada to participate in the Allstate All-Canadian Mentorship Camp. The young players were mentored by NHL stars such as Jason Spezza, Luke Schenn, and Jeff Skinner. Beyond that, former star Gary Roberts taught them all about important aspects of the game that not everyone thinks about such as nutrition and off ice conditioning or training. The four day mentoring camp culminated in a nationally televised game on TSN2.
