Locals making U.S. NTDP U-17 roster

Three Massachusetts natives have confirmed today they've been offered spots on the United States National Team Development Program U-17 roster for 2013-14.

Malden Catholic defenseman Casey Fitzgerald, St. Sebastian's defenseman Noah Hanifin and Noble & Greenough forward Colin White were among those making the cut coming out of the 52 players invited to last week's evaluation camp in Ann Arbor, Mich. All players invited were of the 1997 birth year.

Fitzgerald had 5-17-22 totals while helping the Lancers to their third straight MIAA Super 8 tournament championship.

All three players are committed to Boston College, with Hanifin scheduled to land in Chestnut Hill in 2015, with Fitzgerald and White following in 2016.
