But I disagree with you about the rest of the teams. If he had a USA passport I think on Team USA he gets serious consideration this year for at least a spot. Definitive an invite to camp.
He is a dual citizen by virtue of being born in Arizona, he opted to play for Canada at the 2011 WJHC therefore his fate is now cast in stone pretty much.
Even if he had chosen to play for the U.S. I really don't think he would be given serious consideration for a spot...and invite to camp I don't even see happening, but that would be a decision for the fine folks at USA Hockey in Colorado.
Where I have him ranked? The number 3 center on Canada's C team and that's only for players under the age of 22. Right up there with other players like Dougie Hamilton etc. The promising just out of junior players 1st or 2nd year pro.
