The US Under-18 team plays their first game tonight at the World Under-18 Championships in Russia. This is a pretty big one. It's probably the second biggest international junior tournament after the World Juniors. It's also one of the most heavily scouted events, since most of the players are in their draft year. A player's performance here can have a pretty big impact on their draft stock.
The US team is mostly comprised of their NTDP U18 team, though they added Roseau's Aaron Ness on defense and Phil McRae from the London Knights. Brandon Maxwell, Ryan Bourque, Jeremy Morin, and Kyle Palmieri are playing up from the U17 team.
