Six Terriers set for World Junior Summer Showcase

Rosters have been announced for the two USA squads that will participate in next month’s World Junior Summer Showcase, a first step toward choosing the US Junior National Team that will compete in the World Junior Championships. Sophomore Chad Krys and freshmen Brady Tkachuk and Logan Cockerill are on the Blue squad, while sophomores Jake Oettinger and Patrick Harper will skate for the White squad. The tournament begins on July 29 in Plymouth, Michigan.

USA White plays defending WJC champion Finland on the first day of the event, while USA Blue faces off with the Finns the next day. Freshman Kasper Kotkansalo, a Red Wings third-round draft pick who won a gold medal in the 2016 World U18s, is on the Finnish U20 roster.

Looking ahead

SBN review of Beantown NAPS tournament:

Braden Doyle, #7 Junior Bruins, 8/24/01, Defense, Shoots Left (Boston University) - He played his usual game here. He's dynamic with the puck on his stick. His skating, vision and stick skills are all very good. He's property of the Dubuque Fighting Saints. 

Looking back
Charlie McAvoy, whose first exposure to the NHL was six playoff games, is hard at work, looking to secure a full-time role on the 2017-18  Bruins.
