Update, 10:19 a.m.:
Mike Morreale at NHL.com has a great feature on Kreider.
Newyorkrangers.com reports that Rangers prospects Chris Kreider and Ryan Bourque were among the 22 players named to USA Hockey’s final roster for the 2011 World Junior Championship tournament at Buffalo, which begins on Sunday.
Both were on the Gold Medal winning team last year.
…this was more of formality with Kreider and Bourque as they were both on the team last year and very integral to the team’s success.
…having said that, my congrats to both of them.
