USA Hockey today announced the 21-player roster for the 2008-09 U.S. National Under-17 Team within USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program.

Six players from Michigan and another two from out of state that played on Michigan-based minor hockey programs were named to the roster.

Goalies Jack Campbell (Port Huron, Honeybaked major midget) and Will Yanakeff (Jerome, Honeybaked minor midget) will be in net for Team USA.

On defense, Brighton native Jon Merrill (Little Caesars major midget) is the lone skater with Michigan ties.

Up front, Austin Czarnik (Washington, Belle Tire minor midget), Stuart Higgins (Troy, Compuware minor midget), Luke Moffatt (Phoenix-area native, Compuware minor midget), Bryan Rust (Bloomfield Hills, Honeybaked minor midget) and Jason Zucker (Las Vegas native, Compuware minor midget) all made the final cut.
