The other night on NHL Network Team USA released the 28 players who will have a shot of making the USA World Juniors team, and Canada released their roster yesterday with the 32 players who will have a shot on making the World Juniors roster.
Team USA Preliminary Roster:
Seeing Casey Mittelstadt on the World Juniors stage is going to be something special. Kailer Yamamoto is going to be finally put on a stage where he will be the spotlight and given the chance to excel. Ryan Poehling will be an interesting addition to the team, one of the few players who shocked me on this list. Kieffer Bellows is being brought back one of the few forwards to be brought back from last year. Same goes for Adam Fox on defense he’ll be leading the charge with Charlie McAvoy gone.
Team Canada Preliminary Roster:
This team is going to be unbelievable, between Hart in net, Bean, Clague on defense, Glass, Mcleod, Steel, Suzuki on offense this team is going to be so deep and one of the best teams in the tournament. Like always nothing new here.
