GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- University of North Dakota women's hockey sophomore defenseman Gracen Hirschy was one of 24 defensemen invited to USA Hockey's Women's National Festival, which will take place Aug. 12-16 in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The camp will be used to determine the roster for the U.S. 22-and-under team that will play a three game series against Canada, Aug. 21-24, in Calgary, Alberta.

This past season Hirschy was named to the All-WCHA Rookie Team, leading UND's freshmen with 22 points off of nine goals and 13 assists. She was seventh among the nation's freshmen with a +19 plus/minus rating. Prior to coming to UND, Hirschy competed with the U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team for three years, including a silver medal finish at the 2013 U-18 Women's World Championship.

The festival roster includes 24 defensemen, 38 forwards and seven goaltenders, and in addition to selecting the 22-U team, will be used to select the U-18 team that will also play against Canada in a three game series, Aug. 21-24. The 22-player rosters for both teams will be announced on Aug. 17 and the two teams will stay in Lake Placid for additional practice, Aug. 17-18, before competing against Canada.
