Team USA has finalized their roster for the upcoming World Junior Championship in Helsinki, Finland and the Bruins lead the way with 3 prospects on the team.
Defenseman Brandon Carlo makes the team for the second year. In 22 games played with the Tri-City Americans in the WHL this season he has 2 goals and 12 assists for 14 points.
The University of Notre Dame Sophomore forward Anders Bjork makes the U-20 team for the first time. He did represent the United States on their Gold Medal winning team at the IIHF U-18 World Championship in 2014, scoring 2 goals in 7 games. In 17 games at the University of Notre Dame this year he has 5 goals and 11 assists for 16 points.
Last but not least, Harvard freshman Ryan Donato is a little bit of a surprise to make the team. The Bruins drafted him in the second round in 2014. In 10 games for Harvard University Donato has 4 goals and 5 assists for 9 points.
Team USA plays their first game on December, 26th against Canada at 1pm EST. The NHL Network will be broadcasting all Team USA Games.
