Merrimack head coach Mark Dennehy is part of a group from USA Hockey that is coaching 15-year-old players at this week’s USA Hockey Select 15 Camp in Amherst, N.Y.
The camp opened Sunday with scrimmages.
USA Hockey runs several development camps throughout the summer. Merrimack recruits Ethan Destefani and Jordan Seyfert both recently took part in the Select 17 Camp.
USA Hockey instituted these camps in 1977. According to the USA Hockey website, players learn from top coaches and U.S. National Team mentors.
“Camps consist of age-apropriate practices, games and off-ice training,” according to USAHockey.com, “all geared toward strengthening young American hockey players.”
