The United States team is set to defend its gold medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship in Malmo, Sweden. The first step to defending gold is picking the best possible team for the red, white and blue to put on the ice come December 26th.

USA Hockey has announced the roster and schedule for the 2013 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp to be held at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, NY from August 3-10. There will then be a pre-tournament camp in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area from December 15-18 at which time USA Hockey will determine the final roster.

University of Minnesota head coach Don Lucia will be the head coach of the team. His assistants will be St. Cloud State head coach Bob Motzko, Boston College associate coach Greg Brown and Denver assistant coach Dave Lassonde. Yale University goaltending coach Dan Muse will serve as the team's video coordinator.
