Yellowknife speedskater Michael Gilday has made the 2014-2015 Canadian short track speedskating team.

Speed Skating Canada announced the team earlier this week.

The short track team members are eligible to compete in the fall World Cup selection in September. It serves as the qualifier for the first four World Cup events of the season.
