Gillies to play for USA

Ice goaltender Jon Gillies will play for the Team USA U18 Select team in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. 
The tournament, which will be played Aug. 8-13 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, is one of the top U18 events in the world. 

Gillies holds the franchise record for scoreless streak (182:04) and consecutive wins (10). He went 15-6-2 last season with a 2.82 GAA, primarily as Casey DeSmith's backup. 

The full roster is here. A handful of other players from 2010-11 USHL rosters are also on the roster -- defenseman Ian Brady (Cedar Rapids) and Justin Wade (Fargo) and forwards Vincent Hinostroza (Waterloo), Jordan Masters (Muskegon) and Brendan Silk (USNDTP U17).

Also, Ice teammate Adam Erne was picked for the U17 Select Team, which will play in the Five Nations Tournament in Ann Arbor, Mich. in early August. Erne had 10 goals and eight assists for the Ice last year.
