Roster Update: White's No. 8, Gage Mackie, and Forest's No. 18, Bailey Conger, did not dress for their respective clubs once again on Sunday due to injury. Forest's No. 15, Harrison Oates, missed Sunday's action with an injury as well.

A Wild Affair: Orange rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to slip past Forest by a score of 5-4 in Sunday's first game. After the two clubs combined for nine goals over the first half, it appeared as if the contest was destined to feature a back-and-forth goal-scoring showcase over the final 25 minutes. The combatants had other ideas, however, as neither team was able to find the back of the net in the second half.  

After Forest's Walker Duehr (No. 8), Ben Finkelstein (No. 7) and Van Barr (No. 11) netted goals before the game reached its four-minute mark, Orange stormed back to bury five of the next six before maintaining the one-goal advantage over the scoreless second half.  

Offensively, Taggart Corriveau (No. 11) and Matt Filipe (No. 16) registered a goal and  an assist apiece for Orange. Max Zimmer (No. 8), Erik Foley (No. 9) and Ty Pelton-Byce (No. 17) also lit the lamp in the winning effort.

Black Remains Perfect: Black became the only team to secure all nine points over camp's first three days, defeating Gold by a 3-2 mark to increase its record to an unblemished 3-0-0-0.

Illustrious Leaders: Three of the teams featured in the Select 17 Camp will have the privilege of playing under the tutelage of a trio of USA Hockey alums this week in Jay Pandolfo (Kelly), Mike Grier (Red) and Bob Corkum (Royal).

Pandolfo skated in 899 NHL contests, most of which came with the New Jersey Devils, amassing 226 points. In addition, the Winchester, Mass. native won a pair of Stanley Cups (2000 & 2003) as a member of the Devils and added 33 points over 131 playoff outings. Pandolfo also skated in 80 games between the New York Islanders and Boston Bruins over the final two seasons of his NHL career.

Grier, meanwhile, enjoyed a 14-year NHL career, compiling 383 points over 1,060 games between the Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Buffalo Sabres and San Jose Sharks. The Detroit, Mich. native was a member of the 2005-06 Buffalo Sabres squad, which won a franchise-record 52 regular-season games and helped Team USA capture a Bronze Medal at the 2004 World Championship.

Corkum appeared in 720 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres, Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils and Atlanta Thrashers, tallying a total of 200 points. A native of Salisbury, Mass., Corkum has coached several USA Hockey Select teams, most recently guiding Team USA to a silver medal at last year's Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.
