Rosen named co-captain of US Maccabi squad

Ben Rosen, who graduated in May, is in Israel with Team USA at the 2013 Maccabiah Games. Rosen is one of three Boston University athletes participating in the games. He’s been named co-captain of the U.S. squad that will face skaters from Israel, Canada, Russia and Ukraine. Former BU All-American Colby Cohen had been named to the US squad, but is still rehabbing an injury before heading to Finland where he’ll play for Ässät in the SM-liiga.

Rosen, who began his BU career as a defenseman, but switched to center, spent last week at Islanders development camp—along with Cason Hohmann, Evan Rodrigues and incoming freshman Doyle Somerby—and is expected to skate next season for the Islander’s AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

The sons of two former Terrier standouts are performing at USA Hockey’s Select 15 Development Camp in Williamsville, N.Y.  Forward Ty Amonte, son of BU and NHL standout Tony Amonte, in on Team Navy and has a 1-2-3 line in three games. Defenseman Chad Krys, whose father Mark Krys captained BU’s 1990-91 national finalist squad, has four assists in the first three games. Ty Amonte skates for his father at Thayer Academy, while Chad Krys , who says he tries to emulate Kevin Shattenkirk, mans the blueline for the Connecticut Oilers.
