Schmaltz, Racino, McCabe Named To U-17 Select Team

Wisconsin natives Jordan Schmaltz (Verona, 2012 Badger Recruit), Alex Racino (Merrill), and Jake McCabe (Eau Claire Memorial) have been named to the 2009 U.S. Under-17 Select Team.

According to the press release, "
Twenty players who participated at USA Hockey's Boys' Select 16 Player Development Camp have been selected for the 2009 U.S. Under-17 Select Team that will compete at the 2009 Under-17 Five Nations Tournament from Aug. 18-22, in Fussen, Germany."

Schmaltz, which has already been noted, has already committed to Wisconsin. McCabe has been talked up quite a bit on this blog and has visited the UW and is also considering a host of schools including UNO, UMD, North Dakota, and Minnesota. Racino is a bit of an enigma at this point. The talent is there for Racino, but he's not likely a player that UW will target.
