The Vancouver Canucks are set to host future NHL stars from five NHL teams in Penticton for a Young Stars Tournament from September 12-16, 2010.

The young guns will arrive before Canucks veterans roll into camp September 18 to kick off the 2010-11 season.

The prospects will play in an eight-game, round-robin tournament highlighted by players from the Canucks, Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks.

"We are excited for the opportunity to host our training camp and Vancouver Canucks Young Stars Tournament in Penticton this year," said Vancouver Canucks president and general manager, Mike Gillis.

Gillis said the team is lucky to have support province-wide, enabling the organization to host camps in towns almost anywhere in B.C. and still draw crowds.

"Our organization is very fortunate to have tremendous support from fans across the province and we are pleased to be able to bring our team to an area where people might not otherwise have the chance to see the Canucks play live."

Penticton is a town with a deep hockey history, Gillis said. The town opened the South Okanagan Events Centre in 2008, a $73 million facility. It's now the home of the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League.

Penticton has also been the home of many NHL hockey stars including Paul Kariya, Brett Hull, Duncan Keith, and former Canuck Brendan Morrison.

The Vancouver Canucks Young Stars Tournament begins on September 12. Ticket packages include a ticket each of the eight games, start at $66.

Advanced ticket buyers also receive an exclusive pass to the Canucks Veteran Training Camp.

Packages go on sale June 26 at 10 a.m., online at Single game tickets will be available in mid-August.
