They pretty much pulled in all the top players from the age group, which at this point seems like it could be a good one. The one high end player who won't be on the team at this point is Cam Askew.

this defense is simply outrageous!

I cant recall a group this loaded from the blueline in many years. I thought the 92's were crazy deep, but this group is jaw dropping if all actually show up and not bolt for the CHL.

the forwards are solid as well. though I wish Jackson and Askew made the team, you still need to have balance and round the team out with some grinders. Jackson and Askew will be big dogs on other squads which will be fine.

Bracco and Kirwan are my two big favorites offensively with Yan right there as well...I hope Greenway developes a bit better than Fasching did with the USNDP...as he could wind up being in the top 2-3 drafted from the US if he puts it all together.

New York and New Jersey well represented.

Jones - Werenski - Evers - Hanifin - Fitzgerald = Holy ****!!

There looks to be only 1 forward spot left as far as I can tell. Now it's certainly possibly there's some misinformation out there or some players back out after the OHL draft but USAH seems to know how deep the '97 group is and wants to have this team selected and signed as soon as possible.

Also interesting...no Minnesotans on the roster that's almost complete. Surprising even though it's not a strong year for Minnesota despite the birth year being great for USAH.
Good. I (and many other Minnesotans) love seeing them stay for their high school careers i:e Nick Leddy and Ryan Mcdonagh recently.

Boka will be a force on the back end.

Any chance any of the New England boys head to the Q. I hear the Hanifin kid played out of his mind in Ann Arbor. Would be nice to see him in a Remparts sweater

Hanifin White and Fitzgerald will all go to the NTDP. None will go to the Q. Hanifin talking to them but White and Fitzgerald both indicated they had no interest in the Q from what I heard.

All three will be impact players right out of the gate for the NTDP.

Prospects at ntdp camp

After watching all the prospects this past weekend I feel Jones is high end. He can skate, pass, shoot. He is going to be huge as well. I feel he will become a pronger type player when he comes out of the ntdp.

Sounds like Grant Gabriele (Compuware) has accepted an offer to join the NTDP, bringing the total d-men to 9. I wonder which of the 8 other committed d-men is no longer going to the NTDP?

Maybe they're going to take 9? The U17s had a lot of injuries this year.

I doubt it since the '96 NTDP team already has 8 d-men as well, although it's possible one of them is leaving, but usually they would just add another '96 born d-man. Although, if Werenski and Hanifin are as good as everyone says they are, it probably won't be long before they're both playing with the U18s next year, especially because the '96 d-men are not a good group and those two are supposed to be big-time (think Trouba/Jones) recruits.

You can see Team USA's IIHF entry list for the World U18 Championship in Russia here.

There are 35 skaters and 5 goalies on the list, most of which obviously are from the U17 and U18 NTDP teams. The players listed as possibilities for the team but not from the NTDP are: G - Evan Cowley (NAHL), D - Anthony DeAngelo (OHL), F - Adam Erne (QMJHL), F - Connor Hurley (MNHS/USHL), F - Vinnie Lettieri (USHL), D - Tommy Vannelli (MNHS).

Cowley's team didn't make the NAHL playoffs so he's available. Erne's team would have to bow out (and possibly quickly) in the 2nd round of the QMJHL playoffs to be eligible. Hurley and Lettieri's teams are both going to make the USHL playoffs, which won't start until the time this tournament is starting, so I'm surprised to see them on here unless they have some kind of deal set up with their clubs. And Tommy Vannelli already joined the NTDP U18 permanently after his high school season ended so he'll already be on the team.

D - Scott Savage, D - Trevor Hamilton, F - Shane Eiserman were the U18 players that played the last USHL game of the year with the U17 team while forwards Eichel, Hitchcock, and MacInnis were up with the U18 team to end the season.

I have heard rumors of Hanafin visiting Dubuque post NTDP camp but I have not been able to confirm. Noah was a draft pick of the Fighting Saints last year.

Forward Jake Henderson (Jr. Blues) was thought to be joining the NTDP U17s but has now tendered with Omaha.

Add forward Brody Stevens to the upcoming NTDP U17 team, likely taking Jake Henderson's spot.

why not anyone outside of the USNP? Vannelli is included with the USNDP now..

Must be a lot of playoff hockey going on right now for some of these kids not to make it...Deangelo especially is a head scratcher.

Greenway will go to the OHL, Hanifin and Fitzgerald signing on with NTDP and no news on what Yan has decided. Does anyone know where Yan is going?

Unless the buy out fee is posted Greenway must go to the NTDP correct? He has already commited. Also don't see Fitzgerald going to NTDP. His brother turned the program down to stay in the Northeast so can't see brother going as well. With no word on Yan and if Greenway possibly out of the picture, what other prospect would possibly get a call if those two spots need filled?
