USA Hockey wrapped up their annual Select 17 Festival today, this year held for the best players in the country born in 1997. With the camp ending, a group of players were selected from the camp that will represent the United States at the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial U18 Tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

As a reminder, USA Hockey chooses to omit players currently with the NTDP program from participating in this tournament, so many of the bigger names in this age group are missing.(The theory being those players get plenty of international exposure throughout the year, and this is a good opportunity to develop another tier of players, without taking them away from their winter teams.) The only NTDP player listed is Dennis Yan, who has reportedly left the program.

Here is the full US roster:
