Matthew Knies and Ty Voit have been invited to the USA Hockey World Junior evaluation camp

Some Leafs news popped up this afternoon as USA Hockey has made their announcement of who will be attending their evaluation camp that will serve as the final look for the World Juniors tournament this summer and the first look for the World Juniors tournament around Christmas.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Matthew Knies finds himself on this list. The highly touted prospect was selected to the Olympic team so the World Juniors are a virtual lock for him this summer, but his age will make him ineligible for the winter tournament.

Enter Leafs up and comer Ty Voit, who is coming off a big year with the Sarnia Sting. Voit might be a long shot for the summer team as much of the players who were originally slated to attend the tournament last Christmas are likely to return, but Voit is one of the more interesting options for this December and should get a strong chance to make his case.

The camp also has the potential to include a future Maple Leaf as there isn’t any shortage of 2022 draft eligibles on the invite list.

The evaluation camp runs from July 24th-August 3rd, and will immediately be followed by the 2022 World Junior Tournament in Edmonton from August 9th-20th. The 2023 tournament is slated for December 26th-January 3rd in Halifax and Moncton.
