Sass was left off the Danish team for the Div. 1 Under 20 World Championships. He's still only 16, so he'll have another three years to make that team, but I would probably have picked him based on his performances in the Danish Elite League this season.

In fact, Sass was just one of three players born in 1993 I would have picked for this year's squad, the other two being Nicklas D. Jensen from Herning and Patrick Russell from Linköping. Of the three players mentioned, only Nicklas D. Jensen - son of Dan Jensen - made it to the preliminary squad for the Under 20 Championship. And from this preliminary squad another five names will be culled before the start of the tournament.

I guess the team selectors might have wanted to spare these young players so they'd be fresh for the Under 18 Championships which will be played on home ice in Herning in April.
