Two players taken in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft will be among the European players taking part in the USA Hockey national junior evaluation camp being held Aug. 2-9 in Lake Placid, N.Y.
The camp is one of the first steps toward building the teams that will play in the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.
Among the players taking part for defending gold medalist Finland is forward Kasperi Kapanen, who plays for KalPa in Liiga, Finland's top professional league. He was picked by the Pittsburgh Penguins with the 22nd pick in the first round.
Kapanen likely would have been on the team that won the tournament last year were it not for a shoulder injury that sidelined him for a month.
