Roster Update: The following players did not take part in Friday's action: Royal's No. 6 Brandon Schieman (Injured), Royal's No. 9 Jacob Coleman (Injured), Royal's No. 14 Tanner Moyer, Columbia's No. 9 Gregory Aliotta (Injured), Gold's No. 16 Alexander King (Injured), Gold's No. 3 Jack Kelly (Injured), Black's No. 16 Brendan Warren (Injured) and Black's No. 3 Noah Hanifin (Unspecified).
Championship and All-Star Games: The camp championship game between Kelly and Grey will commence at 8:30 a.m. The two clubs last met on the opening day of camp, with Kelly prevailing by a score of 7-3. The Blue and White All-Stars, whose rosters will be announced early Saturday morning, will then face-off at 10:30 a.m.
Camp's Top Scorers: Red's No. 8 Jeremy Bracco (3G, 9A) and Kelly's No. 12 Brock Boeser (4G, 8A) were the top scorers of this week's Select 16 camp with 12 points apiece. Will Garin (No. 11) of Columbia led camp with seven goals, while Bracco's nine helpers also ranked him atop all skaters.
Camp's Top Goaltenders: Nicholas Vilardo (No. 30) of Black finished as the camp's top goaltender in both goals-against average (1.92) and saves percentage (.931). Black's Jared Dempsey (No. 1) recorded four wins between the pipes over the course of the week to lead all goalies in that category.
Two Finish Flawless: Kelly and Black, both of the American division, each completed this week's pool play with a perfect 5-0 record. Kelly, however, rode an eight-goal second-half rally in its final game on Friday to win the division due to a superior goal-differential (plus-18 to Black's plus-16) and therefore secure a spot in the championship game.
Saving the Best for Last: Forest earned its first win of the week on the final day of competition as they squeaked past Gold by a score of 2-1. The clubs finished to combine for a total of just 37 shots on goal in a game that played out as a tight-checking, defensive-minded battle. Forest's No. 14 Robert Jackson III broke a 1-1 stalemate with 7:35 remaining and goalie Matthew Jurusik (No. 30) put forth a perfect performance over the second half to earn the victory, highlighted by a trio of point-blank saves over the closing minutes of play.
