I would also imagine that depending upon where Trouba and Jones play next year that Keaton Thompson will make this team as the USA Hockey brass usually takes 4-5 of their dmen from the USNDP....either current or alumni. And if both Jones and Trouba are gone, I can easily see them putting Thompson in that role, and the same for Steve Santini who has the size and skill to do just fine here.

I think the trio of Carrick, Santini, and Thompson will be major players for the US depending upon if Trouba and Jones come back... and Santini and Thompson look like first round picks, so the skill and talent is there..

also keep an eye on Evan Allen, John Hayden, and Michael McCarron...depending on how their freshman years go, all 3 kids could be possibilities as well as we know how much the US brass loves their USNDP kids!
