Also impressed with Brandon Fortunato (D), Joe Wegwerth (F), Nathan Billitier (D), and Ryan Hitchcock (F).

I was disappointed with the lack of physical play by the U17 team. Yeah, you could blame it on the adjustment period to the USHL or the fact they are all younger, but it should be noted this is one of the bigger teams the NTDP has put together (12 guys 6'0"+). I would blame it on the fact there are guys still trying to figure out their respective roles on the team.

Bottom line this group could be a very strong one, especially defensively. I'm looking forward to watching them more as the season goes on.
