Brisson, Colangelo, Farrell, Fontaine, Reid selected to BioSteel All-American Game

The USHL made an announcement on Friday about the selection of the players for the BioSteel All-American Game. Five players of the Chicago Steel have been selected for the game. These are most of the number of players selected from a single USHL team. The selected players from the Steel include Brendan Brisson, Sam Colangelo, Sean Farrell, Gunnarwolfe Fontaine, and Luke Reid.

In the event, the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (NTDP) Under-18 team will meet against the top team of the top NHL Draft-eligible players from the USHL.

Brisson, Reid, Colangelo, Farrell, and Fontaine also represented Team USA at the World Junior A Challenge. Team USA got a bronze medal in that challenge. Brock Sheahan, the head coach of the Steel, appreciated the selection of the players from his team. Sheahan said, “As a staff, we are extremely excited to have five of our players take part in the BioSteel All-American Game.”

Farrell is the leading scorer of the league this season with 20 points in 24 games. Colangelo and Fontaine scored 12 goals each in the league this season and they are the eighth-most goal scorers this season. Ryan Hardy, the general manager of the Steel, was also excited for the Steel players. He said, “We are thrilled that these five players have been invited to participate in the BioSteel All-American Game.”
