PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College women's ice hockey player Amber Yung (Rockville, Va.) is one of 22 players who have been named to the 2010 U.S. Women's Under-22 Select Team, that will participate in the USA Hockey Women's National Festival and the 2010 Under-22 Series. Yung recently completed her junior year at Providence as a defenseman.
Yung helped the Friars capture the 2010 HOCKEY EAST Regular-Season title and was runner-up for the HOCKEY EAST Defenseman of the Year award. She earned New England Hockey Writer's All-Star status and was named to the HOCKEY EAST All-Star Second Team. Yung participated in the U.S. Under-22 camp in December (2009).
The Women's National Festival will run from August 13-21 at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, N.Y. The U-22 Team will depart the festival early and travel to Toronto, Canada to compete in the three-game Under-22 Series against Canada from August 18-21.
Each of the games in the Under-22 Series are slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. (ET) on August 18th, 19th and 21st. All games in the series will be played at the MasterCard Centre.
