Sending a player to the WJC is totally the NHL team's call, and most will almost certainly send eligible players there this year. The only real hesitation in past was when the player is a solid member of the NHL team where winning is paramount. This year, with the top teens in the AHL, the only considerations would be if losing the player for several weeks will severely handicap their AHL team, but given (A) most AHL rosters will be VERY deep, and (B) the AHL is a development league anyway, where wins are secondary most of the time, you can basically expect every single WJC eligible player in North America to be at the tourney this year.
