USA Hockey announced today the roster of players that they will take to their pre-tournament camp for this year's World Juniors. The camp will take place December 16-19 in Boston and the team will travel from there to Montreal for the World Juniors tournament.

They selected 30 players overall to attend the camp: 17 forwards, 10 defensemen, and three goalies. That will have to be trimmed down to a final roster of 13 forwards, seven defensemen and three goalies prior to the start of the tournament.

Here's the roster. We'll have reaction to it up shortly.
