The USA Hockey National Select 16 Festival was two weeks ago in Rochester, New York. A couple of people asked if I went out there to watch. I wasn't there, though I do appreciate how much people over-estimate the budget for this site. So I don't have too much in the way of new information to add about the event, but do have a few links worth looking at.
Here were the leading scorers for the tournament, led by Belle Tire's Austin Czarnik and St. Louis' Tucker Long, with 9 points over the course of the week.
USA Hockey also picked their U17 team for the Five Nations Tournament in Slovakia. There's only three eastern players on the team; one from New York, one from New Jersey, and one from Pennsylvania.
Amateur Hockey Report also had a number of very detailed scouting reports on players at the Select 16 Festival. It sounds like forwards Christian Isackson and Max Gardiner and defenseman Stephen Johns and Frankie Simonelli made quite a good impression at the camp.
The Select 17 Festival is currently going on in St. Cloud. I'll have a pretty long write-up once the tournament is over, and will take a wild-ass stab at a draft list for next year's NHL draft. The action in St. Cloud so far has been pretty intense; not necessarily between the players, but between the officials to see who can call the most penalties. Leading scorers are here.
