Grant Sonier is in Lake Placid

For Team USA, defenseman Seth Jones has long held the status of an elite prospect for the 2013 draft class. After an injury forced him out of last year's World Juniors, Jones will get another crack at it. So far at Lake Placid, he continues to show why he is talked about in the same breath with ballyhooed Halifax forward Nathan MacKinnon for 1st overall in 2013. Jones combines skating and size with talent and tons of effort. I believe he will lead a strong group of defenseman for the U.S. in Ufa. Jacob Trouba (Winnipeg Jets, 2012), Brady Skjei (New York Rangers, 2012) and Mike Reilly (Columbus Blue Jackets, 2011) will join Jones on the blue line.
J.T. Miller (New York Rangers, 2011) wills his way around the ice and brings a great combination of skating, skill and work ethic.

Gordie Clark compared Miller to Mike Richards in terms of type of game played. Richards is the better offensive player. Poor mans Mike Richards. Ryan Kesler.
