Michigan natives invited to NTDP camp

Forty-five of the top American players born in 1995 have been invited to USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program Evaluation Camp, announced this week by USA Hockey.

The camp, which is held to help select the 2011-12 U.S. National Under-17 Team, will take place March 21-24 at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube.

"Our scouting staff works all year to identity some of the best talent in the country,” said Ryan Rezmierski, the NTDP’s director of player personnel. “This is just one step in the process of evaluating players, but we get to see firsthand the dedication and hard work each player puts into the camp. We expect highly competitive sessions.”

The evaluation camp roster includes four goaltenders, 16 defensemen and 25 forwards. The players will be split into two teams - Red and Blue - and will participate in on-ice practices, off-ice training and four games.

Evan Allen, F, Sterling Heights, Honeybaked Midget Minor

You have to be kidding me 10 of the 45 players at one time or another played for Honeybaked? Talk about political selections. USA Hockey should be ashamed!
