The United States’ most promising female hockey players showcased their skills for USA Hockey this weekend at National Development Camp.
In all, 36 players gathered at University of New England in Biddeford, Maine, for skills and drills, off-ice conditioning, and scrimmages. Those 36 include a number from the USA’s 2014 Olympic team, such as Hilary Knight, Gigi Marvin, Alexandra Carpenter, Kacey Bellamy, Kendall Coyne, Jocelyne Lameroux-Davidson, Michelle Picard and goaltender Molly Shaus.
The camp also featured a lot of young talent, including Boston College goaltender Corinne Boyles; her teammates, Emily Pfalzer, Lexi Bender, Emily Field and Andie Anastos; Paige Savage of Northeastern; Maddie Elia of Boston University; and Shiann Darkangelo of Quinnipiac.
The camp is used to evaluate player progression and provide training guidelines for future opportunities for the USA Women’s National Team.
