US World Junior Preliminary Roster Announced With 24 NCAA Players”

Gophers Ryan Lindgren and Casey Mittelstadt have been named to the preliminary roster for the 2018 U.S. National Junior Team that will compete in the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Junior Championship in Buffalo, N.Y., December 26-Jan. 5. The most recent WMU player to appear at the World Junior Championship was Frederik Tiffels for Germany.

Twenty-four of the 28 players on Team USA's preliminary World Junior Championship roster are now in the NCAA, according to the list, revealed Tuesday.

Team USA is looking to defend its title it won previous year in Montreal, Canada. A total of 26 players named to the preliminary roster have ties to the United States Hockey League, including 13 players who were members of USA Hockey's National Team Development Program in Plymouth, Michigan.

Three forwards, two defensemen and two goaltenders return from last year's gold-medal winning roster.

Last year, Tkachuk, Hughes, Kemp and Norris helped the Team USA win gold at the 2017 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship in Popras and Spisska Nova Ves, Slovakia. Dating back to 1997, 19 Notre Dame players have taken part in the IIHF World Junior Championships. Meanwhile, Team Finland has won gold twice (2014 and 2016) during that span. U.S. is bringing back its championship-winning coach and current St. Cloud State head coach Bob Motsko.

Sophomore defenseman Andrew Peeke has been named to the U.S. National Junior Team's preliminary roster, USA Hockey announced on the NHL Network's "NHL Now" Tuesday evening (Dec. 5). Quarterfinals will be split between the KeyBank Center and HarborCenter.
