Frankie Simonelli invited to NTDP

2010 Wisconsin defensive recruit Frankie Simonelli who played last season for Team Illinois Major's has been invited to play for the United States NTDP U-17 squad next season. The assumption is that he will accept the invitation. This is a great honor and we should all be excited to keep the NTDP pipeline open. The training that they receive is first class.

It was only early June when we found out about Simonelli's commitment. He will be on a full scholarship with the University of Wisconsin. Not that it really means anything now that he has been invited to the NTDP and is expected to accept, but he was drafted by Cedar Rapids in the USHL draft and Plymouth in the OHL draft.

Congratulations Frankie.
