The 2016 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp is now underway at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.
The 42 players and staff members arrived throughout the day. In the evening, they attended a meeting where staff members, including Jim Johannson (Colorado Springs, Colo.), general manager of the 2017 U.S. National Junior Team, and head coach, Bob Motzko (St. Cloud, Minn.), discussed camp expectations.
"We want guys that are all in and want to be on this team," said Motzko. "They have to put personal accolades aside and they've got to play as a team. We have to set a very quick message but we have to step aside because this is their week to show us what they can do."
