USA Hockey announces 2020 World Junior Summer Showcase roster


By @MichaelCaples –

The 2020 World Junior Summer Showcase is still expected to come through Plymouth this summer, and today, USA Hockey announced the 43 players who will be invited.

Congrats to the following Michigan names, who will take part in the prestigious event that is the starting point for USA Hockey’s World Juniors team selection process.

“We’re excited to have our players and staff together,” said John Vanbiesbrouck (Detroit, Michigan), general manager of the U.S. National Junior Team and assistant executive director of hockey operations at USA Hockey. “While Finland, Sweden and Canada won’t be joining us as we’ve been used to in past years, this will provide a great opportunity to have our players back on the ice and begin the process in earnest of building our team for the World Junior Championship.

“With the current pandemic, we’ll be doing some things differently, and that’s okay. It’s exciting to see rinks opening back up throughout the country and we’re most appreciative of the efforts of Dr. Mike Stuart from the Mayo Clinic, our chief medical and safety officer, among others, for guiding us in best practices to ensure the safest possible environment for our players and everyone involved.”
