ROCKLAND, Mass. — From Thursday through Sunday, prospects in the 2008-2014 birth years competed across the state, playing in various different rinks throughout Massachusetts.
The tournament brought teams from around the continent to the northeast, as many college coaches, scouts and agents took in the action. You can bet representatives from the United States National Team Development Program were there, too.
It was fascinating to watch, as there were lots of top '08 prospects in attendance. Many of them will be considered for USNTDP evaluation camp spots.
I focused mainly on the '08s with one '09 game sprinkled in.
Here are the players who caught my attention.
