Cade Webber will play for the U.S. National Team Development Program U18 team this weekend in games against Boston University and Harvard, USA Hockey announced on Thursday.
The Rivers School junior defenseman was initially invited to play for the NTDP following the organization’s evaluation camp in March 2017, but declined the offer to remain in prep school.
Webber is a 6-foot-6 defenseman committed to BU. He skates remarkably well for his size, but one knock scouts have on him is inability to find lanes and finish plays. Earlier this month, Webber was cited as a “C Skater” in NHL Central Scouting’s Players to Watch List.
