Former PSU Recruit Thomas Welsh makes Team Canada East Selection Camp

Cross Posted at the Hockey Writers - Combine...

I just found out via email this morning, that former PSU recruit Thomas Welsh has been selected to the final evaluation camp for Team Canada East, in hopes of playing in the 2012 World Junior A Challenge.

Welsh is a kid that I have profiled the blog on two previous instances for Inside Hockey. [Link 1] and [link 2]

Welsh had committed to play at Penn State over going to the OHL but changed his mind and decommitted from PSU and is currently considering his options, the NCAA and the OHL are both options that he is considering.

Q: I read on a blog that your son’s rights were traded from Sarnia to Mississauga. Is the CHL still an option as well?

Mike Welsh: Thomas was initially drafted by Sarnia in 2011 but was recently traded to the Steelheads this spring (2012).  There has been some discussion with the Steelheads but that is as far as it goes.  Thomas will need to explore other Div 1 schools.
The selection camp is scheduled for Oct. 28-31, will be held at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto, Canada.

Thomas found out he was selected to Team Canada East selection camp roster on October, 18, the day after his father Mike died from throat cancer.

According to a Tradition of Excellence, UND Hockey recruits Wade Murphy Penticton-BCHL)Adam Tambellini (Vernon-BCHL) are expected to take part in the WJAC Canada West selection camp as well so there is a good chance that Thomas Welsh could cross paths with UND recruits Murphy and Tambellini in November.
