USA Hockey announces preliminary roster for Everett training camp

Expected No. 1 pick in 2019 Jack Hughes and seven NHL first-rounders headline the roster.

USA Hockey announced its 29-player preliminary roster that will appear in Everett for training camp from Dec. 15-17 at Angel of the Winds Arena on Wednesday.

The headliner is 17-year-old forward Jack Hughes, who is thought of by pundits as the clear-cut choice for the No. 1 pick in the upcoming 2019 NHL draft.

Seven NHL first-round picks will also be present: Quinn Hughes (No. 7 to Canucks in 2018), defenseman K’Andre Miller (No. 22 to Rangers in 2018) and forwards Joel Farabee (No. 14 to Flyers in 2018), Jay O’Brien (No. 19 to Flyers in 2018), Oliver Wahlstrom (No. 11 to Islanders in 2018), Ryan Poehling (No. 25 to Canadiens in 2018) and Joshua Norris (No. 19 to Sharks in 2017).
