USA Hockey announced today their U.S. Junior Select Team, a roster comprised of USHL players that will compete in the World Junior A Challenge.
Two Michigan natives made the squad – Shelby Township’s Kyle Connor and Dearborn’s Dakota Joshua.
Connor, a University of Michigan commit, is currently playing for the Youngstown Phantoms. He’s projected by most scouting services and mock selections as a first-round pick in the upcoming 2015 NHL Draft. Connor has 17 points in 12 USHL games this season.
Joshua, a Ohio State commit, plays for the Sioux Falls Stampede. He was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in last summer’s draft; the Original Six club claimed him in the fifth round. Joshua currently has 15 points in 14 USHL games.
Michigan Tech commit Mitch Reinke, a native of Stillwater, Minn., is also on the Team USA roster.
