Jeremy Bracco is among the 32 players that remain on the United States roster for the final four days of USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp in a bid to make the final roster for the team for this year’s IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship.
“We’ve been pleased with the level of competition in the camp so far,” said Jim Johannson, USA Hockey’s assistant executive director of hockey operations and the general manager of the 2017 U.S. National Junior Team.
“This is just one step in the process, but we like the direction our players are headed and look forward to having our head coach, Bob Motzko, behind the bench for the remaining games as we continue to develop our identity. We will continue to evaluate the players released today, along with some others not here, throughout the fall.”
The annual week-long camp staged by USA Hockey, which also includes teams from Canada, Finland and Sweden — continues with practices and games through Saturday at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan. For the complete schedule, click here.
