The 2024 World Junior Hockey Summer Showcase will take place from July 26 through August 3 at USA Hockey Arena Plymouth, Michigan, and two Boston Bruins prospects will be featured on Team USA. Bruins’ 2023 draft picks Chris Pelosi and Beckett Hendrickson, who were teammates with the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL for a portion of the 2023-24 season, have been invited to the event, which serves as an evaluation for athletes seeking to make their respective national teams for the 2025 IIHF World Junior Championship, which will be held December 26, 2024, through January 5, 2025, in Ottawa, Ontario.
