COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Bemidji State’s Clair DeGeorge and Mak Langei have been invited to the 2019 USA Hockey Women’s National Festival, which will take place Aug. 5-13 at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, N.Y.
The Beavers are among a number of invited players to the camp, ranging from multiple-time Olympians to rising stars at the U18 level.
This year’s festival marks the second consecutive invitation for DeGeorge and Langei, both of whom are entering their junior seasons at BSU.
DeGeorge, a forward from Anchorage, Alaska, ranked first on the Beavers last season with 22 points in 36 games, while finishing second on the team in goals (nine). Langei, a defenseman from East Grand Forks, was named third-team All-Western Collegiate Hockey Association in 2018-19 after ranking fourth in the league in blocked shots (74) to go along with 11 points (3g-8a) in 36 games.
The festival serves as a training camp for top-level American players. The camp will also be used to choose both U18 and U22 Select Teams to compete against Canada in the annual U18 and U22 Series. This year's competition, a best-of-three series at each level, will take place in Lake Placid, N.Y., from Aug. 14-17.
