Hohmann shines in Rochester--UPDATED!

At the USA Hockey Select 17 tournament in Rochester, 2011 recruit Cason Hohmann was among the camp's top offensive performers, finishing tied for third in scoring with a 3-6-9 line in five games. A skilled playmaking center, Hohmann (#8) also assisted on the game-winning goal in the tournament all-star game yesterday. Last summer at the Select 16 event, he earned a spot on the 2009 U.S. Under-17 Select Team that played in the Five Nations' tournament in Fussen, Germany.
  • Hohmann was named today to the 21-man U.S. Under-18 Select Team that will compete at the 2010 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament from Aug. 9-14, in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia.

In September, Hohmann returns to Cedar Rapids for a second season in the USHL with 2014 recruit Anthony DeAngelo as a teammate. After a slow start, Hohmann put up a 9-27-36 scoring line during his USHL rookie season. In this video, he scored during regulation and in the shootout as the Roughriders edged Sioux Falls, 4-3.

The Amateur Hockey Report posted a scouting report on Hohmann following a USHL game late last season:

Few players we see are as elusive with the puck as Hohmann. He may be small, which is about our only knock on him, but he gets it done. We watched him move around defenders like they were standing still, his puck skills are at times great. He makes sure he is involved and supports the puck. His quickness allows him to get in front of the play to make things happen. With all that said he doesn't seem to be getting any taller, which makes us think he will be a very
good, productive college player and that's it.

From the development camps
Junior center Corey Trivino, at the Islanders camp, talked with about the importance of the upcoming season in his development.

Sophomore Justin Courtnall is in the Chicago Blackhawks camp and had a goal and three assists
in four games.

Looking back
Two of the defensive anchors of BU’s 2008-09 national champions, Brian Strait and Kevin Shattenkirk, are spending the summer preparing for opportunities to earn NHL roster spots.

After a strong first pro season with Wilkes Barre/Scranton in the AHL, Strait is one of the more experienced players at Penguins development camp, where he again "dominated the competition" in fitness training drills. In an interview, Strait discusses his his development in the AHL and his goal of moving to the top level next season.

The Bleacher Report suggests that "Shattenkirk has the skills to be one of the Avalanche's best defensemen immediately" and projects that "Shattenkirk can contribute 25-30 points as he eases into a power play quarterback role."
The Lake Erie Monsters (Colorado’s AHL affiliate) have posted a number of player profiles including write-ups and photos of Shattenkirk and Colby Cohen. Former Terrier Associate Head Coach David Quinn begins his second season behind the Monsters’ bench.
