For the fourth straight year, Team USA's World Juniors roster will feature a Boston College Eagle.
Bill Arnold made the final cut this morning to make it onto the roster. Freshman Johnny Gaudreau was on the preliminary roster but did not make the final cut.
Arnold will join the U.S. National Junior Team that will compete at the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships in Edmonton and Calgary from December 26-January 5. Arnold will miss the Great Lakes Invitational, while Gaudreau will return to the Eagles to help us bring home a little bit of hardware for the holidays.
Last year, three Eagles made the cut, with Chris Kreider, Brian Dumoulin, and Patrick Wey all making the 22 man roster as Team USA earned the bronze medal. In 2010, Kreider helped lead Team USA to Gold in one of the most trilling World Junior tournaments in recent memory. Jimmy Hayes was on the roster in 2009.
