  • 2015 World Championship Thread

    Czech Republic hosting.

    Nice of Team USA to bring enough college kids that this thread makes sense.

    Roster - Bold denotes current NCAA player
    Forwards:

    Jack Eichel
    Ben Smith
    Nick Bonino
    Steve Moses (injured - out)
    Jimmy Vesey
    Dylan Larkin

    Anders Lee
    Trevor Lewis (a)
    Matt Hendricks (c)
    Jeremy Morin
    Brock Nelson
    Stefan Matteau (injured - returned to U.S. before tournament)
    Mark Arcobello
    Dan Sexton
    Charlie Coyle (added to roster for Stefan Matteau)

    Defensemen:
    Seth Jones
    Connor Murphy
    Mike Reilly
    John Moore
    Zach Redmond
    Justin Faulk (a)
    Jake Gardiner

    Goalies:
    Jack Campbell
    Alex Lyon
    Connor Hellebuyck

    U.S. beat Austria in Austria 4-1 today in an exhibition. Mike Reilly scored the opening goal and was named player of the game. Auston Matthews (USNTDP) scored the GWG after helping the U-18s win their World Championship in Switzerland, but he will not be on the final roster. Lyon played in the 3rd period and did not give up a goal. A skater and a goalie are left to be added to the roster.

    The U.S. is in group B. Full schedule is here. http://mensworlds.usahockey.com/page...95680-schedule Games will be streamed live, and most will air live, on NBCSN. First game is Friday at 10:15 AM vs. Finland.

    Oh, this tournament also determines the seeding for the 2018 Olympics. http://www.usahockey.com/news_articl...rrer_id=752796 Other nations have not brought such a young, experimental lineup. Should be a good experience for the NCAA guys anyway.

        Slovenia has former UAA defenseman Luka Vidmar on their roster.

        And the US roster is terrible. In contrast, Canada has Sydney Crosby.

            And Sydney won't be there is the Penguins were still in the Stanley Cup playoffs. What available players would you like to see on the U.S. team?

                    Yeah, I can honestly say there are 3 or 4 guys on that roster that I have never heard of. I generally like the youth approach, but I think this is a little extreme.

                    I know some guys often turn down the invite, as they are often just glad to get their NHL season over with - any indication that any of those better names did so?

                      In other World Championship action, North Korea won the D3 title over Turkey. Here's the game winning goal

                      So they'll be in 2B next year. Their counterparts from the South won the 1B title, so they'll be in 1A next year. Looks like they're at least improving for the Olympics, but most likely they will be somwhere between 18-20th in the world, between 1A and 1B when the Olympics take place. I really hope the US can be in their group just for the free win.

                        Nelson was supposedly added but I haven't seen anything on him yet. Trouba is hurt. Backes's wife is due with child soon so I think he was a polite maybe (ie-no). I haven't seen anything about the other guys but I'd have to think most were invited and said no.

                            Well, we're a young team. Finland is a good test to see what the team looks like. The Vesey/Eichel/Lewis line should be interesting.
