Blake forwards Adelaide Burton and Lily Delianedis and defender Grace Johnson highlight a group of 49 players from Minnesota selected to participate in the USA Hockey Girls’ 15 National Player Development Camp July 18-24 at St. Cloud State University.
Participants represent the state's top players born in 2001 and were selected in June following the completion of the Girls’ HP 15 Summer Camp in St. Cloud. See below for the complete list of players chosen.
Burton, Delianedis and Johnson made the cut for the camp three months after the eighth-graders helped the Bears (26-2-2) capture the Class 1A state title. Burton tallied six assists and seven points while Delianedis had two goals in the tournament. Johnson played in all three games, registering six shots on goal.
The nation camp is the last piece of the CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance Programs, which are held in conjunction with USA Hockey and known as “select” programs across the country. The organizations use the events to identify Minnesota's top performers in each age group for possible opportunities to represent the USA at national and international competitions.
