Hjelle, Youso featured in IF Daily Journal

Minnesota Duluth recruit Brady Hjelle and Minnesota recruit Jake Youso, both of whom will be seniors at International Falls High School this fall, were featured in an article in the International Falls Daily Journal. The article, written by Joe Krause, talks about both players being selected to the USA Under-18 Select Team that will compete in this year’s Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament, which will be held August 14-18 in Piestany, Slovakia and Hodonin, Czech Republic.

Hjelle, a goalie, is slated to join the Bulldogs in the fall of 2008. Youso, a forward, is tentatively scheduled to be a Gopher in the fall of 2009, but could be moved up to the fall of '08 if Minnesota is hit hard by early departures next spring / summer.
