Team USA defeated Finland 8-3 on Saturday in its final game of the 2010 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp. Incoming DU Freshman Beau Bennett had two more assists on power play goals and Jason Zucker provided a spark to the team during the decisive second period when the USA exploded for five goals.

Bennett finished the camp as the fourth leading scorer with one goal and six assists in seven games. Zucker added a goal in six games. In the international games against Sweden and Finland, Bennett led the team with six assists.

Both Zucker & Bennett will find out their status on the squad in late December following a pre-tournament camp that will begin in mid-December.

The contest featured 22 of the 42 U.S. players who participated in the camp and were auditioning for a spot on the U.S. National Junior Team that will take part in the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2010-Jan. 5, 2011, in Buffalo, N.Y.
