Team Canada announced some big names to their World Championship roster shortly after the regular season ended, and on Wednesday Team USA followed suit with a major announcement of their own.

According to an official announcement from USA Hockey, Buffalo Sabres superstar Jack Eichel will be joining their roster, this announcement comes on the same day that Eichel is rumored to have demanded a coaching change from the Sabres organization.

Eichel was dynamic for the Buffalo Sabres this season, this despite the fact that the Sabres were anything but, and as a result he finished 11th in points per game played this season, an incredible accomplishment for a second-year pro on a bad team who's season was hurt by a major injury early on.

This is a huge addition for Team USA.
