According to Chris Peters of CBS, Motte will represent the United States at the upcoming World Championships. He’ll be joined there by his linemates from the so-called CCM line at the University of Michigan: JT Compher and Kyle Connor.
Connor recently signed his entry level deal with the Winnipeg Jets, and Motte has already signed a three-year deal with the Blackhawks (beginning next season). Compher’s right belong to the Colorado Avalanche.
