Ehresmann to Attend Select U18 Camp
Goalie commit Hannah Ehresmann, scheduled for a 2014 entry, has been named at at-large selection to the USA Hockey Select U18 Player Development Camp. The event runs from July 10th through 18th in St. Cloud, MN and is a showcase for the best American players in the age group.
As with all USA Hockey national camps, Select U18s are heavily scouted and a good showing can help open up future national team opportunities.
Ehresmann is a rising senior at Minnetonka High School in Minnesota where, of course, she teamed up with PSU freshmen Laura Bowman and Amy Petersen for the last two seasons, both ending in state titles for the Skippers. While she generally backed up Let's Play Hockey Senior Goalie of the Year Sydney Rossman on those teams, Ehresmann was outstanding when called on - she had an 11-1-0 record with a 0.91 goals against average and a 0.939 save percentage in 2012-2013, following up 7-2-0, 1.21 and 0.928 in 2011-2012. Rossman is headed to Quinnipiac in the fall, so Ehresmann is expected to do the heavy lifting for Minnetonka in their attempt to add to their already unprecedented three-peat in the coming season.
Last summer, the rapidly rising prospect participated in the Select 16 Player Development Camp. While splitting each game down the middle with Gold Team goalie partner Sara Merker, she stopped 19 of 20 across her first two appearances before surrendering four goals on 13 shots in her final game to wind up with a 3.33 goals against average. She's also been an Upper Midwest High School Elite League selection and even played a part in getting hockey declared the official state sport of Minnesota as a sixth grader back in 2008.
