The Americans were one of the last teams to release their camp roster for the upcoming World Junior Championships. There weren’t many surprises. Jack Hughes and Spencer Knight were the only 2001-born players included. Shame for those hoping to get a closer look at a handful of potential early selections this June. We’ll survive though.
The games will be split between Victoria and Vancouver, BC. The Americans will play their round-robin contests in Victoria at the more intimate 7500 seat arena. I’ll be there with bells on to watch the Group B games.
Before we dive into projecting the USA roster that will look to improve on the bronze medal they won a year ago, take a few moments to look over the projected lineups for Sweden, Finland, Russia, and the Czech Republic.
Now for those blokes in the Red, White and Blue.
First line: Jason Robertson –
