Islanders 2013 Draft Central - Calvin Petersen and Eamon McAdam

by Greg Picker / New York Islanders
In his first full season in the USHL, Calvin Petersen helped lead Waterloo to the USHL playoffs as the Western Conference’s third seed. A native of the city where he currently plays, Petersen still has one more year of USHL hockey before heading to the University of Notre Dame in the fall of 2014. With teammate and fellow 2013 draft prospect Eamon McAdam heading for the NCAA next season, Petersen is expected to become the full-time starter after splitting the schedule with McAdam this past season.

Mike Dunham, Islanders Goaltending Coach
Calvin Petersen is a good butterfly goalie who plays an aggressive, athletic style and takes up a lot of net. He plays calm and does a good job controlling his rebounds. Calvin has a sense of calmness whenever he's in the net.
Doylestown, PA native Eamon McAdam made a lot of noise at the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game this past January. McAdam earned MVP Honors as he helped the West Team win 2-1. After splitting time with Calvin Petersen in Waterloo, McAdam looks to further his game next season at Penn State University. The Nittany Lions will jump to the Big-10 Conference next year, meaning McAdam will face some of the best competition in NCAA Hockey.
