Well, he impressed everyone as the captain of the 95 Hlinka team, already played at the spring U18's as an underager, and has big game experience with his club team (was with the team during their WHL and Mem Cup run).

I'd say his odds of making the team should be fairly high given the lack of 94 forwards.

I don't like Athanasiou much either, but his improvement so far should at least earn him a summer camp invite.

Well, I wouldn't really look at his stats this season as the Bulls are awful offensively this year.

Plus, it's about where he'll be at a year from now.
He should be a very strong player next year and will at least get a look.
Don't count out his familiarity with the big ice in Belleville, as this tournament will be in Europe again (Malmö).


Also, as some have said already, some notable 2012 draftees are not eligible for this tournament as they are late 93's.
Ceci, Di Giuseppe, Murray, Sissons, and Subban are the big ones that come to mind immediately.
