Noah Hanifin Will Play For USA Hockey At IIHF World Championship

Worlds begin May 6 in Russia

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College hockey will send at least one player to team USA at this year's IIHF World Championships - former Eagle Noah Hanifin. In his end-of-season interview with the Carolina media, Hanifin, who played very well as a rookie blueliner for the Hurricanes this season, confirmed he'll be playing at the upcoming Worlds:

The IIHF World Championships start in Russia on May 6, and run through May 22. Canada has already announced its roster, and it's largely full of young players. The US roster will also likely be heavy on young guns, particularly with the top stars likely to be play in this fall's World Cup of Hockey. It's already been rumored that the entire "CCM" line from this year's Michigan team may go play at Worlds; there may be other Eagles of recent vintage who could make the roster as well.

Congrats to Noah and good luck representing the US!
