Habs Inside/Out is freaking awesome.... They are a great source for Habs news...
I'd never doubt them. If they say something is a done deal... its done.
Lets be clear though... this is the World Jr A tournament.... Not the World Junior Championships.
Habs prospect Danny Kristo has been named to the U.S. Junior Select team which will compete in the World Junior A Challenge, Nov. 2-9 at Camrose, Alberta. Kristo was one of 22 players selected from the United States Hockey League.
A good performance in this tournament will definetely help his WJC stock though... and a bad performance would kill his chances to make the team IMO.
is he off to a good start? I don't know how much is expected from a rookie in his league.
Habs Inside/Out had quotes from two different scouts yesterday or the day before, and one of them said he could be playing in the NCAA right now. NCAA freshman are generally 19, and Kristo just turned 18 in April, so I guess he's doing ok.
