Jenks makes U.S. Under-18 Selects

USA Hockey today announced the 21-player roster and coaching staff for its 2007 U.S. Under-18 Select Team. The squad will compete in the 2007 Under-18 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka from August 14-18 in Piestany, Slovakia and Hodonin, Czech Republic.

Team members were chosen from the 2007 USA Hockey Select 17 Player Development Camp, which was held July 7-13 at the National Hockey Center at St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minn., and featured many of America’s best hockey players born in 1990.

Two Michigan natives are on the team including Plymouth Whalers' forward AJ Jenks (Wolverine Lake) and Belle Tire midget forward Shawn Szydlowski (St. Clair Shores).
