DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Penguins Elite players Brandon Svoboda and Zack Ferris have been invited to USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program Evaluation Camp. The camp is held to help determine the 2021-22 U.S. National Under-17 Team. The camp runs this week at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.
USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program is a full-time program designed not only to prepare students-athletes for success on USA Hockey national teams and their future hockey careers but also for being a well-rounded individual off the ice. Notable alumni of the program include Patrick Kane, Auston Matthews, Phil Kessel, Jack Eichel and Jack Hughes.
Brandon, a forward and Zack, a goalie are both members of the 15U Pens Elite team. Both players are also members of the EXCEL Hockey Academy at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.
Congratulations to Brandon and Zack on the invitation and good luck!
