USA Hockey's Select 16 Festival is going on this week in Rochester, New York. Here's the Festival website. There's been some controversy this week because instead of the Festival's usual lax enforcement of the rules, officials have been testing out USA Hockey's new rules enforcement which has led to an increased number of penalties.
You can check out the list of leading scorers here. Michigan recruit Robbie Czarnik is leading the field by a couple of points. Hockey in Wisconsin has been keeping track of players tied to Wisconsin.
I tried to put together some brief notes on some of the leading scorers in the tournament to make things a little easier for some people.
