Tyler Motte - Bruce Bennett

Malmo, Sweden -- The United States has finalized its roster with the announcement that Michigan forward Tyler Motte will be the final player cut. Don Lucia's roster is now set as the Americans get ready to begin the tournament Thursday Dec. 26 against the Czech Republic.

Motte, a fourth round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 NHL Draft, has five goals and three assists in his first 14 games in a maize and blue uniform for Red Berenson's Wolverines. The St. Clair, Mich. native will fly home and likely be available for Michigan in the Great Lakes Invitational, played outside at Comerica Park. The Wolverines play Western Michigan in the second semifinal on Friday.
