Last year there was one, this year three. MAP North Members Ethan Haider, Nate Thelen, and Brady Meyer have had quite the spring so far. All three performed extremely well among their peers and were selected to the 16’s (Haider and Thelen) and 17’s (Meyer), 2017 USA Hockey Boys Select National Development Camp.
Through their hard work these three have caught the eye of many coaches and scouts. It will be exciting to see how they continue to develop and how far they will go!
