Just to get it out of the way I have no delusions about my kids or anyone I know making the USNTDP. That said I'm curious what the path is for players who find their way onto these teams. Is it really all through the state selections and regional development camps? If so what happens from there, they get selected at the state level, go the regional camps and then get offered more opportunities based on performance at the camp? Obviously your dad and/or siblings playing in the NHL helps you get noticed but what's it like for the other players? Anyone have any real world experience with the USNTDP?
OP here. Thanks for the straightforward and informative replies. I appreciate it.
