By Flying Aces Staff, 06/02/18, 8:45AM CDT


Four games set for morning session; All-Star, Young Stars games to follow

The Central Illinois Flying Aces' 2018 Main Camp is part of the process of setting the roster for the 2018-19 season, which will be the organization's fifth as a member of the USHL. More than 150 players will participate at the camp, including returning players, affiliate list players, the Flying Aces' draft picks and free agents. 

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – The Central Illinois Flying Aces' 2018 Main Camp ramps up on Saturday with the All-Star and Young Stars games set for the afternoon, starting with the All-Star game at 4 p.m. at Grossinger Motors Arena in downtown Bloomington.

The more than 150 prospects attending the camp will have one last chance to stake their claim for a spot on the rosters for the All-Star or Young Star game. Each of the eight teams will play its fourth and final game as part of the morning session. Following those four games, the Flying Aces coaching staff will select the rosters for both the All-Star game and Young Stars game.



After the draft picks stole the show on Thursday, several new players stepped to the forefront on Friday. Returning forward Steven Agriogianis (Penn State University) had the best individual performance of the camp to date, registering a four-point outing on a goal and three assists. Jonathan Panisa, a 2018 USHL Phase II pick by Central Illinois, was one of the upstarts on day two, posting a three-assist game in the morning and finishing with a four-point day. Nicholas Leyer finished with a five-goal day, which included a two-goal game in the morning and a hat trick, the first of the weekend, in the final game of the day. 

Friday's games involved a host of close battles, with three five games decided by two goals or less. Team Black remained undefeated at 3-0-0 thanks to some strong goaltending. In three games, Mitchell Gibson and Andrew Farrah have yielded a combined five goals. 


  • Team Black secured an undefeated record in its four games of main camp, squeaking past Team Light Blue in a 3-2 shootout decision. In a battle of the two netminders in the shootout, Mitchell Gibson (Harvard University) and returning netminder Ryan Snowden combined to stop 13 of the 14 attempts. Snowden yielded the only goal, as Warren Natyshak scored to send Team Black to the win.
  • Trevor Janicke (University of Notre Dame) netted his second goal of the weekend to start the scoring in the first period. The No. 1 overall Phase II pick in 2018 has two goals and an assist this weekend. 
  • Calen Kiefiuk (University of Michigan) posted his fifth point of the weekend (1G, 4A), assisting on Janicke's goal. That duo has had consistent chemistry throughout the weekend, factoring into three of the same goals. 
  • Brehdan Engum, who played 12 games for the Flying Aces during the 2017-18 season, recorded his first point of the weekend, a goal in the late stages of the second period to force the shootout for Team Light Blue. Seventh-round selection Payton Matsui had the lone assist on the goal, his second point of camp (1G, 1A). 
  • The second game of the day featured the second straight shootout, as Team White won the three-round affair to earn the 5-4 victory.
  • Despite the loss, Jack MacNab had his first multi-point game of the weekend for Team Green. The sixth round, 96th overall pick by Central Illinois, MacNab (University of Notre Dame) had three goals and an assist through four games of camp. 
  • Team Purple and Team Orange supplied plenty of offense in Game 15. Seven different players registered a multi-point game including three multi-goal efforts. In the loss, Team Purple's Bradley Marek and Jonathan Panisa both had a pair of tallies. The goals for Panisa were his first of camp, coming a day after he posted four assists between two games.
  • In the final tilt before the all star game, Team Grey received a two-goal game from Didrik Henbrant and Ethan Holt to take down Team Gold, 4-2. After posting a four-point game on Saturday, Steven Agriogianis (Penn State University) followed that up with a two-assist game for Team Grey. 


  • After a goal and four assists through four games, Team Navy forward and first overall Phase I pick Stephen Halliday struck for two goals in the first period of the All-Star game, his second multi-point game of the weekend. Jonathan Panisa continued his tear with assists on both goals, while Joe Dunlap also contributed helpers on both. 
  • Tate Singleton supplied the first goal for Team White, the second goal of the weekend for the 13th overall selection in the 2018 Phase II Draft. 
  • Brendan Datema registered the game-winning goal for Team White. Datema posted nine points (2 G, 7 A) this past season for the NAHL's Amarillo Bulls, which are also part of the CSH International family along with the Aces. 
  • Mitchell Gibson (Harvard University) and Josh Graziano combined to earn the victory in goal for Team White. Returning netminder Ryan Snowden and Andrew Farrah split time in goal for Team Navy. 
  • In the Young Stars game, David Crandall opened the scoring off an assist from defenseman John Driscoll to make it a 1-0 Team Navy lead. Crandall's tally was his first of the weekend to go with three assists. Driscoll's helper was his first point of the weekend. The Flying Aces acquired the blue liner's rights in a trade with Omaha in February.
  • Detroit native Bobby Metz tallied the eventual game-winning goal for Team Navy with 9:32 left in the second period of the Young Stars game. 
  • Jake Dunlap tallied the lone goal for Team White, his second score of the day. 
  • Team Navy goaltender Devon Levi played the entire game, yielding just one goal to earn the win.
