The US needed a come back in the third period and a lengthy shoot-out to get past Finland on Thursday afternoon; as the US summer evaluation camp continues. Will Butcher assisted on a third period tally for the Americans.
Chris Peters from The United States of Hockey commented on his performance:
Though his defense is still coming along, Butcher’s puck-moving game is looking as good as ever in this camp. He’s strong on the power play and he reads the offensive zone really well. Butcher has good speed and his distribution is solid. He’s making better decisions with the puck and taking fewer unnecessary risks. I think he could carve a spot for himself as the team’s seventh defenseman, but he played top-pairing minutes today and looked just fine.
