The final roster for the 2018 Senior Team competing in the CCM NIT on April 19th has been announced. Coached by Brother Rice assistant coach Jeff Fleming, Hartland head coach Rick Gadwa and Northville assistant coach Gordie Brown, the Team Michigan Seniors are comprised of 20 players from 16 different schools.
|1||G||Pierce Cadieux||Brother Rice|
|2||D||Jake Beaune||Livonia Stevenson|
|5||D||Dominick DiPonio||Brother Rice|
|7||D||Jordan Kovacs||Warren De La Salle|
|9||F||Hunter Baudino||Orchard Lake St. Mary's|
|10||F||Brad Baysore||Grand Rapids Christian|
|14||F||Conner Graham||Lake Orion|
|16||F||Dylan Montie||Detroit Catholic Central|
|19||F||Brendan West||Detroit Catholic Central|
|30||G||Gerritt Hoogenraad||Grand Rapids Catholic Central|
The roster features 11 players from last year's Junior Team that went 1-2-1 in a fourth-place finish at the 2017 CCM NIT. With nine new faces -- including two goalies -- and three players that were named to the 2018 MI-HS Dream Team, expectations for the group are very high.
"We're excited about this group of seniors and expect to compete and show well in Minnesota," said Fleming. "With such a diverse group and kids coming together from all over the state, we'll definitely need a strong two weeks of camp and preparation."
Training camp for this senior group is slated to begin Sunday, April 8th, and will run for 11 consecutive days leading up to the tournament, which begins Thursday, April, 19th.
The Team Michigan Junior roster will be announced at a later date.
