Summer Ice in Lake Placid

Four Terriers are participating in the U.S. Junior National Team Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid: forwards Colin Wilson and Vinny Saponari and defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk and David Warsofsky (photo courtesy USA Hockey). Blueliner Colby Cohen had been invited to camp, but had to skip it due to an ankle he tweaked at Colorado Avalanche development camp. Camp media guide.

In an intrasquad scrimmage, Wilson registered a goal and an assist, and then got the better of a dust-up with Michigan recruit Greg Pateryn (see series of five photos from USCHO’s Melissa Wade, beginning here).

In games against teams from Sweden and Finland, several of the Terriers stood out. Wilson assisted on two Ryan Bourque goals in a 4-1 win against Finland. Warsofsky scored on a one-timer (video, first goal) in a 3-2 loss to Sweden. Warsofsky also scored on an end-to-end rush in a 7-1 win over Finland.’s Shawn Roarke, covering the WJC camp, reports that Coach Ron Rolston had used the defensive pairing of Shattenkirk and Wisconsin’s Ryan McDonough as his shut-down pairing in the first two games.
