Today, USA Hockey released the roster of players that will participate in their World Juniors Summer Camp this August in New York. This camp isn't as huge of a deal since USA Hockey will be watching all these guys extensively throughout the season and how they perform early next year, along with how they perform in the final pre-tournament camp will likely be the deciding factor of who goes to the tournament. But it's still a great chance to see all the best players in these age groups in one place, and gives everyone a general idea of who is on the radar, and who the most likely candidates are.

Here are the players going to the camp:

As expected, this group will draw very heavily from the '92 age group, which was an extremely strong year for the US. There's a lot of good choices here for the US. They may not have as much star power up front, but they should be very deep at both the forward and defense positions.
