Each August, USA Hockey invites approximately 40 players to the World Junior Summer Showcase, previously recognized as USA Hockey's National Junior Evaluation Camp. The event is part of the process to select the U.S. National Junior Team that will compete at the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship, which takes place each December.
In mid-December each year, Team USA conducts a training camp that leads to the selection of the final U.S. National Junior Team. That roster may include players who did not attend the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp.
Forty-four players have been invited to the 2021 World Junior Summer Showcase set for July 24-31 at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.
The Showcase, which will also include teams from Finland and Sweden, will serve as an evaluation for athletes seeking to make their respective national teams for the 2022 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship Dec. 26, 2021, through Jan. 5, 2022 in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alberta.
