Four players from Yale’s national championship team have volunteered to help out at the CCM Skills Camp at the Boch Arena in Dedham, Mass., this weekend.

The camp is invitation only and free to 80 kids on Saturday and 80 kids on Sunday.

Gus Young, a native of Dedham, Mass., is among the four players partaking in the event. The soon-to-be senior was a seventh-round pick of the Avalanche in 2009. The 6-foot-2 defenseman notched nine points in 37 games last year.

Kenny Agostino, Tommy Fallen and Anthony Day round out the quartet of Bulldogs. 

Agostino tied for the team lead with 41 points last season. A draft pick of the Penguins, the forward was part of the trade that brought Jarome Iginla from Calgary to Pittsburgh.

Day, a 5-foot-9 forward from Buffalo, N.Y., had 1-4-5 totals in 37 games last year as a sophomore. Fallen was also in his second year as a Bulldog in 2012-13. The Minnesota native scored seven goals and added 16 assists, leading Yale blueliners with 23 points.
