New England will be well represented at the 2019 USA Hockey NTDP Evaluation Camp that takes place later this month in Plymouth, Mich.
Fifty-two players, including 16 with ties to the region, will attend the five-day selection camp at USA Hockey Arena. The camp will help select the 2019-20 U.S. National Under-17 Team.
Boston University and Northeastern lead local colleges with three recruits each while Boston College, Providence and UMass have two commits each. Nationally, Miami and Notre Dame are the most well-represented with each school sending five recruits to the camp.
Fifty-two players is a higher number than in past years as the camp used to hover around 40 prospective players. The invitees were selected by USA Hockey NTDP Director of Player Personnel Kevin Reiter, Assistant Director of Player Personnel Rod Braceful, and several area scouts employed by USA Hockey.
