The CH interested party Blake Biondi invited to the US junior team camp

Blake Biondi is definitely not the most famous Canadian. The young Minnesota forward, 2020 CH fourth-round pick, didn’t have a very good first season in the NCAA in 2020-21 (two goals and five points in 26 games) and we didn’t. never really seen as a great hope in the Montreal organization.

That year, however, Biondi had a much better sophomore season on the American collegiate circuit with 17 goals and 28 points in 42 games. He’s shown that he’s capable of scoring goals, and while he’s far from an NHL caliber player today, he still has some potential.

And obviously United States ice hockey realized it while Biondi is on the list of players invited to the America Junior Squad Evaluation Camp. It takes place at the end of July.

Thus, Biondi has a chance to fight for a place in the American team, but he is only eligible for the tournament, which takes place this summer. Born in 2002, he cannot take part in the 2023 tournament, which takes place during the December/January holidays.

However, a job is far from secured. While guys like Matty Beniers won’t be there, the fact remains that there are a lot of of talent among young American forwards. Thomas Bordeleau, Logan Cooley, Matt Coronato, Matthew Knies, Chaz Lucius and so on: the list of good strikers invited to the camp is long.

The fact remains that even if Biondi should not be selected, he is still part of the list of 35 attackers selected by United States ice hockey. This is something worth noting.

Also note that Kent Hughes’ son, Jack, is also among the guests. Will he make it into the team sooner than Biondi? It’s not impossible.

In short, we’ll see if Biondi can earn a spot. Remember that two other CH hopefuls, Joshua Roy and RIley Kidney, have been invited to Team Canada Junior’s camp. So things are going well for CH hopes.
