Nick Bjustad Drawing Raves @ US WJC Camp

The word I'm receiving from USA's World Junior evaluation camp in Lake Placid is that the play of young centers Brock Nelson, Nick Bjugstad and Charlie Coyle has been the talk of the camp.
All three players were first round NHL draft picks last month, and all three players have size.and speed. Bjugstad was picked 19th by Florida. While Coyle went to the San Jose Sharks and Nelson was chosen by the New York Islanders. Bjugstad is 6-4. Brock is 6-3 and Coyle is 6-2.
"They are very involved in the play," said USA Hockey's assistant executive director Jim Johannson said. "They all appear to be solid all-around players."
The Americans will defend their World Championship in Buffalo over the Christmas holiday, and they will have a veteran team, particularly on defense and in net with Dallas draft pick Jack Campbell. The Americans also have speed and experience on the wing.

"If the three centerman are the real deal, and they have been so far, we should have a formidable group," Johannson said.
You can follow events and games at the U.S. training camp:
