Yesterday, we wrote about four Eagles making it through to the end of USA World Junior evaluation camp in Lake Placid. A key piece of information I got wrong when I wrote my story: according to Frozen Futures, Ian McCoshen was sent home for precautionary reasons with a minor injury - so describing him as being cut would be inaccurate.
Ian McCoshen- McCoshen is another defenseman who played on the Blue team. Although he failed to register a point in any of the three scrimmages, he played well above par defense. It has been reported that he was sent home for precautionary reasons, and he is expected to make the final roster in December. He made the World Junior team last season.
While there aren't a lot of details available about what ails McCoshen, the Sun-Sentinel reports that the precautionary sending-home came after taking a "hard check."
Hopefully this is minor enough that it won't impact McCoshen for the start of training camp next month; based on what's being reported, it's unlikely to be anything too serious.
In other World Junior related hockey news, Alex Tuch scored a hat trick as the US team destroyed Sweden 7-1 in an exhibition in Lake Placid. Via USA Hockey:
Playing as one squad for the first time of the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp, Team USA downed Sweden, 7-1, at the Olympic Center's USA Rink. Alex Tuch (Baldwinsville, N.Y./U.S. National Under-18 Team) notched a hat trick, Jack Eichel (North Chelmsford, Mass./U.S. National Under-18 Team) tallied three assists and Ryan Collins (Bloomfield, Minn./U.S. National Under-18 Team) scored twice.
Also via USA Hockey: the highlights -
"The quarterback played a bunch of ball and obviously Andre Williams was such a great player. They have a lot of unknowns at several spots for next year but have recruited well."...
Rashad Jennings is the starting running back, but the Giants feel it's important to have a strong rotation at the position. Hillis and rookie Andre Williams are the two backs who appear to have the best opportunities to take the snaps that had been slated for Wilson.
