LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - The 2014 U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp is underway at the Olympic Center. The 42 players and staff arrived throughout the afternoon, dropping off their gear at the rink and catching up with familiar faces. In the evening, Jim Johannson, general manager of the 2015 U.S. National Junior Team, and Mark Osiecki, head coach of the 2015 U.S. squad, conducted a meeting that set the expectations for the next eight days of camp.
