Shayne Gostisbehere (Flyers 3rd round 2012 pick) has a strong chance to make the team. Excerpt from United States of Hockey (US hockey blog):

"The U.S. also has a host of skill players that can create offensively from the defensive position, which is going to be especially important this year with some questions up front.

That’s a big reason I think Shayne Gostisbehere will be a potential top-two pairing defenseman for Team USA. He has poise with the puck and knows how to create. He’s great on the power play and has more than enough hockey sense to be effective in the D zone. He lacks physical strength, but he has that skill and speed to get away with it. Gostisbehere has also played on the big stage before, having been part of Union’s Frozen Four run last season."

He was a standout at the camp this past summer and has 10 pts in 11 NCAA games this year for Union.
