2017 Draft Pick to Participate in Under-17 Five Nations Tournament


Ralston, NE –Forward Josh Groll was named to the US Under-17 Select Team that will participate in the Five Nations Tournament on Thursday afternoon. Groll was one of seven Lancers participating in the Under-17 Selection Camp over this week.

Groll, a 17th round draft pick in the 2017 USHL Phase II Draft, played for the San Diego Jr. Gulls 15U team last season. The San Diego, CA native joins Jack Randl as the second Lancer in the last two seasons to participate in the tournament.

Groll and Team USA will look to repeat as champions after Team USA won the tournament last year in Frisco, Tex., posting a perfect 4-0 record. It marked the seventh championship in nine tries for the U.S., which also claimed top honors in 2015, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2008.

In addition to the U.S., the 2017 Under-17 Five Nations Tournament will also include teams from Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany.

The Five Nations Tournament runs August 23-27 in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
