This just in, NHL insider Frank Seravalli has revealed Team USA's roster for the upcoming 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China before USA Hockey has made the announcement official.
Check it out:
That's... that's one young looking roster. I mean, we always knew that this team would be underwhelming given that the NHL pulled out of this tournament entirely. The likes of top prospects like Jake Sanderson and Matty Beniers should make this team interesting, but the lack of veteran former NHL talent may be their undoing. Sure, there's guys like Nick Shore and Steven Kampfer there but when you compare that to veterans on the Canadian side like Eric Staal and Devan Dubnyk well... well it's just not up to par.
In any case, this entire tournament is likely to be a bore as it is... call me when the NHL is back in the Olympics again...
