#1 Jones
#13 Ernie
#20 Compher
#21 McCoshen
#25 Hartman
#28 Lodge
#31 McCarron
#32 Hurley
#36 Pesce
#37 Bailey

Of the top 19 players:
15 Canadians
2 Americans
2 International

To me having only 2 Americans in the top 19 is really not that great. It seems like the last few drafts the American numbers for top tier players is getting worse, not better.

Well one factor to consider is that only two of those listed players were on the gold medal team.
