I've been really impressed with Pat Sieloff. Personally I don't see how he doesn't make the team. Great stay at home partner for a puck-mover and very physical to boot.

On paper, the U.S. is the 3rd best team going into the tournament - altho Finland may beg to differ.
Unfortunately, they are in a division with the 2 teams who have more talent.

The U.S. teams tend to start off slowly. Fortunately, they have Germany on December 27th - a guaranteed win.

The New Year's Eve game against Slovakia will be the key. They will have played 2 tough(!) games against Russia and Canada and, if they falter on Jan 31st (either because they overlook Slovakia, run into a hot goalie or because they are exhausted), they could easily find themselves in the bottom half.
Having said all that, I don't think Slovakia will be an issue and I think the U.S. will overachieve in the round robin - finishing 2nd (or higher) in their pool.

This tournament will be a pleasure to watch and exciting from start to finish.

Good luck to Team USA (being sincere not sarcastic) and Gold to Team Canada.

MY personal guess is that Miller is almost surely going to get a letter.

Trouba probably has a decent chance at one.

Both are NDTP grads and have tournament experience.

After that, who knows.


Somewhat random guess

C- Miller
A- Trouba
A- Biggs

Well to be clear I'm kind of guessing, but my guess is no.

The last two sets of captains have been

C- John Ramage
Jeremy Morin
Ryan Bourque

Ramage and Morin are USNDTP alums, and all three of these guys were returning players.


C- Jason Zucker
Emerson Etem
Jarred Tinordi


Zucker was a two time returning player and an NDTP alum. Tinordi was an NDTP alum and Etem was a returning player.


So as a non NDTP alum and non returning player, I'd say that Galchenyuk has an uphill battle for a captain slot.

Saw something on Travis Roy recently. USA Hockey should make him apart of their WJR program.

Depends on if coaches choose or let players vote. I doubt it though, especially since Gally will be a focal point and have media requests galore directed at him. He'll certainly be a leader in that regard. I hope USAH shields him.

Both Bourque and Etem were NTDP alums, although Emerson left for the WHL after one year.

Indeed. It also teaches once again to not go from memory and actually take the time to look stuff up and get it right.

Does Brady Vail has a chance of making the team next year ?
I saw he wasn't invited to the camp.

All players from the current roster will travel to Europe for the exhibition games. Not surprising, especially since there's 4 players at most (3 if IIHF keeps Noesen ineligible) to go home. Final team announced December 22nd.

He's not there. Going with the roster they have. Not a fan of that decision. There's basically no competition up front.

No, IIHF hasn't ruled on USAH's appeal yet.

Probably won't be much coverage of the camp until they get to Europe and the exhibition games but here's a good twitter to follow:

He's at the camp in New York.
