Team USA Progressing

from USA Hockey,
A simple glance at the 39-man roster reveals an historic variance. The 2005 Men’s Olympic Orientation Camp, which concluded Sept. 8, in Colorado Springs, Colo., played host for three days to what is likely the widest range of ages that has ever been legitimately considered for a U.S. Men’s Olympic Team. The next step in the selection process, and Laviolette was quick to point out that the previous three days were not a team tryout, will be to assess the players during their respective regular seasons. The youngest players may have much to prove in the coming weeks and months, but each is better for the experience. As talented as they were upon arrival, they’ve been further exposed to a priceless resource of those who have come before them.
