The 2019 World Junior Championship in Vancouver, British Columbia is less than two months away. That's when the U.S., winners in 2010, 2013 and 2017, will seek a fourth straight medal in the event.
The U.S. will be coached by Minnesota State head coach Mike Hastings. The assistants will be Minnesota Duluth head coach Scott Sandelin, Northeastern associate head coach Jerry Keefe, Dartmouth associate head coach Dave Lassonde and Ohio State associate head coach Steve Miller.
The Americans will have a significantly different roster than it did in 2018. Most notably, former Boston University left wing Brady Tkachuk won’t be on the roster, despite still being young enough. After being selected fourth overall by the Ottawa Senators, he turned pro.
