UNH Recruits Representing the USA

Throughout August, three UNH recruits will be representing our country at various venues.

Brett Pesce
2013 Recruit, Brett Pesce, has had quite a summer. In July, Pesce participated in USA Hockey's Select 17 Player Development Camp, finished second in scoring among defensemen with a goal and 4 assists in 5 games, and was chosen for the U.S. Under-18 Select Team that is currently competing at the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The highlight so far was Pesce assisting on the overtime, game-winning goal against the Russian team. To watch a video of that goal, check out - #6 Pesce keeps the puck in the zone and Vincent Hinostroza scores the goal.

Tyler Kelleher
Last March, Tyler Kelleher (2014 Recruit) participated in the tryout camp for USA Hockey's Under-17 National Team Development Program. Although the final roster for the 2011-12 US National U-17 Team has not been officially announced by USA Hockey, this video interview with Kelleher confirms that he is on the team and attending their orientation in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Kyle Smith
2012 Recruit, Kyle Smith was recently selected for an All-Star Team from the Eastern Junior Hockey League which will represent the USA at the Junior World Cup. This event will be played in Omsk, Russia in late August and will feature teams from Russia, Belarus, Latvia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Sweden, and Canada.
