Zach Budish Makes the Cut After USA Hockey Trims Roster
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - Zach Budish, the Nashville Predators second choice (41st overall, second round) in the 2009 Entry Draft, was named one of 29 skaters to make the roster for the United States' four exhibition games against Russia this week

Twenty-nine of the original 42 invitees to the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp will remain to face Russia in a series of international games this week at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid.The players are auditioning for a spot on the U.S. National Junior Team that will take part in the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2008-Jan. 5, 2009, in Saskatoon and Regina, Sask.

"We kept five defensive pairs and five forward lines, and all of them will have a chance to show what they can do against Russia," said Dean Blais (International Falls, Minn.), head coach of the 2010 U.S. National Junior Team. "Even after this camp ends, we will continue to evaluate all of these players, including those who are heading home now."

Among those remaining are three returning forwards from the 2009 U.S. National Junior Team, including Tyler Johnson (Spokane, Wash.), Danny Kristo (Eden Prairie, Minn.), and Jordan Schroeder (Prior Lake, Minn./University of Minnesota).

Also highlighting the list of remaining invitees are six players from the gold medal-winning 2009 U.S. National Under-18 Team, including forwards Ryan Bourque (Boxford, Mass.), Jerry D'Amigo (Binghamton, N.Y.), Jeremy Morin (Auburn, N.Y.), Kenny Ryan (Franklin Village, Mich.); defenseman Cam Fowler (Farmington Hills, Mich.); and goalie Jack Campbell (Port Huron, Mich.).
