Mike Morreale of NHL.com gives us the inside scoop on the U.S. National Junior team selection camp coming to Greenburgh, NY—the New York Rangers practice facility—from December 16-18.
The U.S.. will play in Group B at the 2013 WJC, along with Russia, Canada, Slovakia and Germany, with preliminary-round games being played at the 7,950-seat Ufa Arena. Defending gold medalist Sweden, which scored a 1-0 overtime victory against Russia in last year's WJC final to end 30 years of championship futility, heads the Group A, which also includes Finland, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Latvia.
… J.T. Miller is a lock to return for the 2013 WJC as he had a solid camp back in August and continues to shine where ever he plays. Just another notch on his already impressive belt.
… Brady Skjei could also join Miller, and it would be a great experience for him if he does. Steven Fogarty looks to be on the outside looking in.
