Toronto and Montreal are hosting the 2015 World Junior Championship, and the Blackhawks will have a number of prospects participating when the games start today.
Four the 13 forwards to make the USA roster are Hawks prospects. Yale’s John Hayden will be an alternate captain, and will be coached by Rockford assistant Mark Osiecki. Tyler Motte, Nick Schmaltz and Anthony Louis also made the team.
Defenseman Robin Norell, a fourth round pick by the Hawks in 2013, will be representing Sweden again.
