Got this from another thread. Apparently, Jon Blum was named the USA captain. I'm assuming JVR will then be named an alternate, but it doesn't have that listed in this link. I guess I'm a bit dissappointed that JVR wasn't named captain, but I'll be happy as long as he has a strong tournament, like last year.

"More good news on the Vancouver Giants' world junior front -- Jon Blum has been named captain of the U.S. world junior team."


Wow, I'm surprised, but it looks like JVR didn't even get a letter. I know it's not really a big deal, but it would be nice to see him recognized as a leader of the team, even though I'm sure he already has that status "in the room", and on the ice, obviously. It may just speak to the quality and depth of Team USA.

Defenseman Jonathon Blum (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.) has been named captain of the 2009 U.S. National Junior Team...In addition, forward Colin Wilson (Greenwich, Conn./Boston University) and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk (New Rochelle, N.Y./Boston University) have been named alternate captains.
