As usual, the U.S. Women's National Team will feature multiple Boston College players at training camp. Nine current, future, and former Eagles have been named to the 2016 camp roster. This camp will be used to select the team that will compete against Team Canada on December 17 and 19.
Katie Burt, Kali Flanagan, and Megan Keller are the 3 current Eagles that will be attending the camp. Burt, BC's starting goaltender, has previously attended Team USA camps, as has junior defenseman Flanagan. Megan Keller, also a junior defender, has been a member of the Nation Team since 2014. Keller was also an alternate captain for the Under-22 Select Team over the summer.
Cayla Barnes, who will join the Eagles in the fall of 2017, is the only future Eagle to be invited to training camp. Barnes, a defender, is a highly touted recruit who should make an immediate impact next season.
The five former Eagles invited to the camp are all familiar faces to the US National Team. They are Alex Carpenter, Emily Pfalzer, Haley Skarupa, Kelli Stack, and Dana Trivigno. All 5 players are currently playing in the NWHL - Carpenter for the Boston Pride, Pfalzer for the Buffalo Beauts, and Skarupa, Stack, and Trivigno for the Connecticut Whale.
Good luck to the Eagles in camp!
