Nieto invited to Strelow Goaltending Camp

Garrett Nieto of the Los Angeles Jr. Kings' 16U AAA Major team has been invited to the seventh annual Warren Strelow National Team Goaltending Camp, which features many of the top U.S. goaltenders eligible for international play within select age groups.

Former Jr. Kings goaltender Evan Sarthou was also invited.

The camp, which opens on Thursday in Ann Arbor, Mich., is named after the former NHL goalie coach who served in the same capacity for the 1980 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team.

The elite four-day camp will cover both physical and mental aspects of goaltending, helping each player master the fundamentals of the position while developing a personal identity that translates to in-game success.

The camp will be led by Kevin Reiter, Warren Strelow mentor and U.S. National Team goaltending coach, and regional mentors Adam Berkohoel, Justin Goldman and Jared Waimon

In addition, assistant mentors Mike Ayers, Joe Exter, Bob Janosz, David Lassonde, Matt Millar, Nick Petraglia and Alison Quandt will be on hand for instruction, as well as several guest coaches, including: Shane Clifford, former NHL goalie coach and current goalie coach for the United States Hockey League's (USHL) Youngstown Phantoms; Brianne McLaughlin, U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team goalie (2010, 2014); Phil Osaer, assistant and goalie coach for the USHL's Cedar Rapids RoughRiders; Robb Stauber, U.S. Women's National Team goalie coach; John Vanbiesbrouck, former NHL and Olympic goaltender; and Jessie Vetter, U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team goalie (2010, 2014).
