Western College Hockey Projects USA Forwards

Western College Hockey Blog projects the forwards for Team USA in the World Junior Tournament. Four University of Denver forwards are considered possibilities to make the Team.

Drew Shore has been penciled in as a likely first line center, Jason Zucker is considered a "mortal lock" to make the team, Beau Bennett is mentioned as a possible power play specialist and Nick Shore is listed as a possible longshot to make the team. What enhances Nick's chances is the lack to elite centers listed as possible invitees to the camp.

You didn't mention Zucker who is a mortal lock to make the team. He has Zucker, D. Shore and Bennett on the team with N. Shore not making it.

DG,

Your daily mistake is hoping to see your feet in the morning.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned. If you click on the link below, you get a free digital subscription to USA Hockey Magazine. I just did it and the November 10 issue has an article about the Stastny family.
