The US usually has a very patchwork roster for the WCs, with euro league players or NCAA kids added to fill the ranks. I'm guessing the lack of exposure in the US makes it a tournament that not many Americans are overjoyed to be part of. Either that or the US braintrust doesn't like rejection, so they only ask players who never expect the invitation to begin with...

It's nice to see Brodie picked though, I would have guessed he would have been overlooked given the amount of Canadian D to choose from.
