    According to this Zajac was invited to the summer development camp, but Brule was not. I have yet to see either of them play in person, but from what I hear, Brule is a more developed player (I could be wrong.)
    I can't imagine Brule not going to ND on the U20 with the season he is having.

    Brule was with the U18 team which is why he was absent from the U20 camp.

    Ok, that makes a whole lot of sense. Is he expected to be added to the U20? or remain with the U18?

    He will be invited to the camp (if he's not it will be a shock), but there is no guarantees he makes the team witht eh depth the team has. Plus, I'm not sure If he's even eligible for the next U18 tournament.

    But I think he'll get a camp invite for sure, but he'll have to really impress to make the team.

    Zajac is 2 years older, is playing in a more mature league and is bigger. Zajac has 9 goals in 16 games for UND in his freshmen year.

    He didn't say the NCAA was better, he said it was more mature. Zajac's opponents are much more developed physically because their ages are upwards of 24 or 25 years old.
