Cooley, Gauthier among 2022 NHL Draft prospects at USA Hockey camp

The camp will take place from July 24 to August 31. 3 at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan. It will include five goalkeepers, 20 defenders and 35 forwards.

WJC 2022 will take place August 9-20 in Edmonton. The tournament was originally scheduled for December 26 to January 26. 5 but was postponed on December 29 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. Non-camp players who took part in WJC 2022 will be eligible to play when the tournament returns, whether or not they have reached the age of 20.

WJC 2023 is scheduled from December 26, 2022 to January 1. 5, 2023, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Moncton, New Brunswick.

Cooley (5-foot-10, 180 pounds), a center for the USA Hockey National Team Development Program under-18 team, is number 2 in Final Ranking of North American Skaters from NHL Central Scouting for the 2022 draft. He finished second in the NTDP with 75 points (27 goals, 48 ​​assists) in 51 games. He had 10 points (three goals, seven assists) and 23 shots in six games to help the United States finish second at the 2022 IIHF World Under-18 Championship.

“He’s very hard to contain, very hard to limit, and he’s got this brain that processes the game very quickly,” NHL Central Scouting senior director David Gregory said.

Gauthier (6-2, 200), an NTDP left-winger, is No. 3 in Central Scouting’s final North American skater rankings. He finished second in the NTDP with 34 goals and fifth with 65 points in 54 games. He also had nine points (three goals, six assists) and 30 shots on goal in six games for the United States at the U-18 World Cup.

“He’s been very consistent all year as a point producer,” Gregory said, “and his game has really evolved so he can play in all situations so he can kill a penalty for you because “He’s got good reach, good positional play without the puck.”

Also present will be the right wings of the NTDP Jimmy Snuggerud (#11) and Rutger McGroarty (No. 22), Northeast University Center Jack Hughes (#26) and NTDP Defenders Ryan Chesley (#18) and Lane Hutson (#25).

NTDP Guardians Dylan Silverstein#3 on Central Scouting’s final ranking of north american goaliesand Tyler Muszelik (N°4) everyone is expected at the camp.
