I know that he is not on the current roster, but my personal favorite for a D-man roster spot for the future is Markus Lauridsen (Olivers little brother).
He has been flying under the radar for some time; playing in a league that is somewhat difficult to get information from and being in the shadow of his brother. But actually I consider him a talent at about the same level as the other big D-man prospect Jesper Jensen.
The two times he participated in the WJC-20 D1 on the national team, he was the best D-man on the team, and he has progressed nicely the 2 years he has played in the USHL.
He has a very good frame for a defender; 6'2"/188 cm and nearly 200 lbs./90 kg (and is still growing), he is a good skater and is very good with the puck. He is putting up a lot of points and is a power play specialist, something we could definitely use on the national team.
