Krueger invited to German Olympic Team camp


On Monday, 32 players opened a five-day summer camp in Fussen, Germany that is billed as the initial evaluation for the Olympic Winter Games as well as the 2010 IIHF World Championships, which will be hosted by the German cities of Cologne, Mannheim and Gelsenkirchen from May 7-23.

All the invitees are from member clubs of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) except for defenseman Justin Krueger, who plays in the NCAA for Cornell and was a 2006 seventh-round draft pick of the Carolina Hurricanes. Krueger, who scored one goal and five points in 35 games as a junior for the Big Red in 2008-09, is the son of Switzerland's national coach, Ralph Krueger.
Highly doubt he makes it as none of the NHLers are on the list. It's impossible to imagine Seidenberg, Ehrhoff, Sturm, Marcel Goc, Hecht and Schubert not making the team unless they're hurt. But man what a boost for the kid to even get to this point in the selection process.

Here's the invited roster:

Goaltenders (5): Dennis Endras (Augsburg), Dimitri Patzold (Ingolstadt), Jochen Reimer (Wolfsburg), Sebastian Stefaniszin (Iserlohn), Youri Ziffzer (Hannover)

Defensemen (12): Michael Bakos (Ingolstadt), Jens Baxmann (Berlin), Nikolai Goc (Hannover), Frank Hordler (Berlin), Korbinian Holzer (Dusseldorf), Justin Krueger (Cornell University), Moritz Muller (Koln), Sebastian Osterloh (Frankfurt), Andre Reiss (Hannover), Denis Reul (Mannheim), Benedikt Schopper (Krefeld), Steffen Tolzer (Augsburg)

Forwards (15): Alexander Barta (Hamburg), Constantin Braun (Berlin), Michael Hackert (Mannheim), Kai Hospelt (Wolfsburg), Marcus Kink (Mannheim), Manuel Klinge (Kassel), Frank Mauer (Mannheim), Ulrich Maurer (Augsburg), Marcel Muller (Koln), Thomas Oppenheimer (Frankfurt), Elia Ostwald (Hamburg), Andre Rankel (Berlin), Yannic Seidenberg (Mannheim), Alexander Weiss (Berlin), Michael Wolf (Iserlohn)

Nice for him to be there to experience it. Perhaps down the road he can play for Germany. Just too young and inexperienced now.

The way I see it is the nhl'ers are locks and these guys are fighting it out for the remaining roster spots.
