USA Hockey published the rosters for the 2015 CCM All American Prospects Game1, to be held Thursday, September 24 at Buffalo’s First Niagara Center. On the heels of last year’s much-ballyhooed game which featured such luminaries as Jack Eichel, Noah Hanifin and Zach Werenski, as well as 2015-2016 Boston College freshman Jeremy Bracco, this year’s game will feature 42 of the top 2016 draft-eligible American hockey players.
Among the elite 42 named to the roster include three Boston College commits for the 2015-2016 season: defensemen Michael Campoli and Luke McInnis, and forward Graham McPhee. All three are expected to be drafted in 2016, then arrive on campus at BC for either the 2016-2017 or 2017-2018 college season.
Campoli, a 6’2”, 195 pound defenseman, is a dual national, originally from Quebec but with US citizenship.
Campoli is coming up on his second season with the US National Team Development Program. He’s known for his shut-down defensive skills, and is currently expected to fall somewhere around the 3rd round of next year’s draft.
Luke McInnis, of Hingham, MA, is the son of BC great Marty McInnis. McInnis is more of a prototypical puck-moving defenseman with high-end offensive skills.
Last year, he plied his trade in the prep school ranks at Dexter School. He’s expected to arrive at BC in the fall of 2017.
Graham McPhee is a 5’11” winger out of Maryland who was a standout at Shattuck St. Mary’s in Minnesota before moving on to the US national team development program.
He played for the Under 17s last season, scoring 19 points in 43 games, and will move up to the U18s this year before presumably enrolling at BC for ’16-’17.
The full roster features 8 Hockey East commits.
BC leads the way with 3 participants.
Boston University has two, while Northeastern, Notre Dame, and Connecticut have one each.
