The issue (to me at least) for making this team is that he is really just a center.

Galchenyuk, Grimaldi (when healthy), Kuraly are pretty much locked in.

Then it comes down to what you want out of your 4th line center spot. Trocheck looked pretty darn good (especially at creating offense) and I gotta imagine it would be tough for USA Hockey to leave him off. Bardreau also looked pretty good too, and would be a great fit if you just want that 4th line to be a sparkplug/energy line.

Fogarty could definitely slot in nicely as a faceoff/defensive specialist so he will be in the mix pending his start at ND. Who knows. If Grimaldi has issues coming back and Galchenyuk is up with the Habs it's a whole new ballgame.
