World Jrs.: USA Wins Gold Medal (USA 3 Sweden 1)

With the season in doubt the World Juniors may be the best hockey we see all year.

Shayne Gostisbehere is going to be the only Flyers propsect in the tourney if he can make team USA.

Shayne Gostisbehere — LD — Union — A revelation as a true freshman last season at Union, Gostisbehere only continued to impress this summer in Lake Placid. He really came out of nowhere to get drafted, but continually reenforces Philly’s decision with his play. With great skating and tremendous offensive awareness, Gostisbehere can be a threat at both ends of the ice. He understands his physical limitations in the D-zone and makes up for it with a good defensive stick and sound positioning. He has the ability to exploit the big ice with his skating and vision, which will help supplement the offense should he make the team. Gostisbehere has been a point-per-game player with five goals and eight assists in 13 games. He also has played on the big stage as part of Union’s Frozen Four team last year and that experience certainly counts. The U.S. has a pretty tough decision when it comes to Gostisbehere, Grzelcyk and Reilly. It is unlikely they will take all three as they’re each similar, so it comes down to defending. That’s where I think Gostisbehere has an edge and what I believe will put him on the team. Philadelphia Flyers
