Ten players with ties to the Jr. Ducks, including six who played for the 16U AAA team this past season, advanced to USA Hockey Boys Select camps this summer.

The group includes six 2005 birth years who moved on to the Select 17 camp and four 2006s who made the Select 16 camp. Both were held at the Northtown Center and Daemen University at Amherst, N.Y.

The 2005 cohort includes goaltender Miles Roberts, defensemen Francois DeVilliers, Lukas McCloskey and Jason Zaccari, as well as forwards Ty Henricks and Christian Kim. Roberts, McCloskey, Henricks and Kim skated for the 16U team that reached the USA Hockey Nationals in April.

The 2006 group included forwards Carson Castro, Colin Frank, Chase Stefanek and defenseman Tanner Henricks. Castro and Frank also played for the 16s.

Roberts dominated CAHA play this season, posting a .975 save percentage and a 0.37 goals-against average. He allowed just three goals in eight starts. Overall, he had .929 and 1.94 numbers.

Kim, a Michigan State commit, led CAHA with 40 points in 12 games, and had 141 points (58 goals) in 61 games.

Henricks, a Western Michigan commit, was second in CAHA with 30 points in 12 games, and he scored 68 goals month his 123 points overall.

Frank had 67 points (20 goals) in 41 games, and Castro added 18 points in 54 games. McCloskey had 12 in 22 games.

DeVilliers played two games in the United States Hockey League for Lincoln.

The Select 17 camp was held in late June, while the Select 16s gathered in early July.
