My breakout player for the US:

RYAN HARTMAN!

I love this kid and the way he plays. I think he can play any style you want, and I am happy that him and Jones will get to showcase their skill for the upcoming draft on a bigger stage. I think by the time its over, Hartman will be a kid that gets his name vaulted a bit from a solid physical showing. As long as he cools down the penalties, this kid is a pure buzz saw with skill.

Honorable Mention : Riley Barber.

I love both Hartman and Barber. Both are a bit on the smaller side, but bring strong work ethics, speed and skill. Barber will be tougher to make this team as I dont know how well he can play on the 4th line where he would likely slot, but if the US brass feel he can handle that role and still chip in offensively, he should make this team.

I also love Mario Lucia and his size and skill. Happy he is coming back strong from his injury. He can be a big difference maker for this team on the third line likely...hopefully with Kerdiles there!!
