ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Over 150 girls competed at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center in the Girls National 16/17 Camp for a chance to advance to the U-18 Select Camp.

Only 13 total players from the camp were selected to advance on, including five from Minnesota. These players will be added to a roster of others who have already made the cut to play at the U-18 Select Camp.

The U-18 Select Camp will be held July 15 - 21 in St. Cloud, Minn. The roster will then be narrowed down again to include only those who will compete at the Women's U-18 Team National Festival in August.

These girls will be competing for a chance to play for Team USA at the upcoming 2023 U-18 Women's World Championships in Sweden.

All 13 players who made the roster cut are listed below.
