Agostino Selected for National Camp

Kenny Agostino

Yale Rookie MVP Trying Out for U.S. Team

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.Kenny Agostino, the Yale hockey player who earned rookie MVP honors last winter, has been selected to the 40-man roster for the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp this August in Lake Placid, N.Y.

Agostino will be auditioning for a spot on the U.S. National Junior Team that takes part in the 2012 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in Calgary and Edmonton, Alta.

“It is a tremendous honor to be invited to the evaluation camp. The opportunity to compete with great players from all over the country will be a great experience,” said Agostino, who was Hockey Commissioner’s Association Rookie of the Month in January and finished 15th among Division I rookies with .81 points per game overall.

The camp, which will take place at Lake Placid's Olympic Center from Aug. 6-13, includes practices, intrasquad scrimmages and international games featuring Finland, Sweden and the United States. A full schedule is below.

“I have been very fortunate to have great coaches and players who have helped me develop this past year. My freshman year at Yale was a great experience. It was an adjustment process for me early on, but I feel I learned a lot about the game this past year. I am also very excited to return to the Penguins’ prospect camp after completing my first year of college hockey,” said the Pittsburgh draft pick and a 2010-11 Academic All-ECAC pick.
