He’s won two medals for Team USA, a bronze at the U-17 World Hockey Challenge and gold at the U-18 World Championships. Larkin will head to the University of Michigan next season.

Larkin is a talented hockey player coming out of Ann Arbor and the USNTDP program. He's a very versatile forward who plays a responsible game and is a terrific skater. Larkin's greatest asset is his speed, but that shouldn't discount any other skill he has. He plays the game with a team-first attitude and leadership qualities.

Switzerland-native Kevin Fiala spent the past two seasons developing his game in Sweden. Fiala played 17 games for HV71’s main squad and posted 11 points (3G, 8A). The 5’10”, 180-pound winger finished second in team playoff scoring with six points (1G, 5A) in eight games. Fiala also nearly scored a point-per-game (10G, 15A) in 27 games for HV71’s junior squad.

Fiala is a very good, all-around solid player. He's not the biggest kid in stature but don't bet against him in any situation. Hands, skill and smarts galore. This kid is blessed with the ability to make anyone around him better and all of his teammates should always be ready for the puck.
Born in Guildford, England, Brendan Perlini played his youth hockey in Europe before arriving in North America at age 11. Perlini played for the Niagara Ice Dogs this past season and began the year notching 30 points in his first 15 games. His goal-scoring touch could also be seen on the international stage, tallying three goals for Canada while earning a Bronze Medal at the 2014 U-18 World Junior Championship.

Perlini is a power forward that is a terrific skater. He can shoot the puck in stride and plays really hard for a big man. He's more of a north/south player, but his speed causes major concerns for a defenseman in one-on-one situations. Perlini has good hockey sense, good hands and a very good shot. His skills make him an interesting choice.
