Mike StainkampContributor IJuly 16, 2010

USA Hockey has announced the Under-18 Select Team that will participate in the 2010 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, scheduled to take place August 9-14.

The players have been selected out of a group that participated in the USA Hockey Boys Select 17 Player Development Camp that was held in Rochester, NY from July 7-13.

The team is highlighted by Jay Williams, who led all goaltenders at the camp with a .964 save percentage and a 1.20 goals against average, as well as forward Carson Hohmann, who scored three goals and added six assists to finish tied for third at the camp with nine points.

The tournament will feature eight countries separated into two groups. Group A, consisting of the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, and the U.S., will play its preliminary games in Breclav, Czech Republic. Group B, made up of Canada, Slovakia, Sweden, and Switzerland, will play its prelims in Piestany, Slovakia.

The U.S. has had success in the past Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournaments, finishing in the top three nine times since the tournament began in 1991, including a first place finish in 2003.

The 21 players selected represent 13 states across the U.S. and will be coached by Tim Army, who is the head men's ice hockey coach at Providence College.
