USA Hockey Goaltending Development Camp

MINNEAPOLIS – Two Golden Gopher goaltenders are among the 18 female goalies selected to participate in USA Hockey's fourth annual U.S. Women's National Team Goaltending Development Camp this Friday through Sunday at the Schwan Super Rink in Blaine, Minn.

Freshman Alex Gulstene and incoming junior Sydney Scobee are among the goaltenders set to attend the camp, which annually brings together the nation's top female goaltenders from the U18 to professional level, provides athletes with specialized training and mentoring, and provides critical resources to support their long-term development as elite goaltenders.

Goaltenders for the gold medal-winning 2018 U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team Nicole Hensley and Alex Rigsby will act as goalie mentors supporting lead coach Matt Kelly and the camp's five goaltending coaches, Alli Altman, Laura Bellamy, Steve Guider, two-time Olympic silver medalist Bri McLaughlin and Lucy Scheodel.

The players represent 11 different states. Minnesota leads the way with five representatives, followed by Illinois, Massachusetts, and New York with two apiece. Eight players spent last season playing college hockey, including three from the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, two from both the ECAC and Hockey East Association, and one from College Hockey America.
