Jake McCabe named captain of U.S. world junior team. Alternate captains: Cole Bardreau, Seth Jones, J.T. Miller and Jacob Trouba— James Mirtle (@mirtle) December 23, 2012
...while being named alternate captain of the USA World Jr. team is nothing to sneeze at, when reports had Miller as a possible front runner for the captaincy there's got to be a little disappointment from the Rangers 2011 first rounder.
Meanwhile, in other news from Team USA camp, Brady Skjei (2012 - 1st) was officially cut.
With Skjei, it was a numbers game & its unfortunate because he was great in Lake Placid &, even since then, he's done so much to improve.— Julie Robenhymer (@JulieRobenhymer) December 23, 2012
...not exactly the best day for the Rangers at Team USA camp. Hoping Skjei uses this as motivation to get better.
Miller and Team USA faces Germany in their first game on Thursday, December 27th
