Breaking: Team USA announces their captain for the World Cup of Hockey.

The World Cup of Hockey is just around the corner and you can expect some big announcements in the coming weeks, and on Wednesday we got one of them.

According to a report from the National Hockey League's official website Team USA has named their World Cup captain, and taking the mantle of that role will be San Jose Shark captain Joe Pavelski.

The appointment makes perfect sense, in his first season as captain of the Sharks, Pavelski led the franchise to it's first ever Stanley Cup Final, and clearly Team USA is hoping to capture some of that same magic to go all the way in this tournament.
