We’ve got some actual hockey news on this fine Monday, folks! Things are still pretty quiet on the NHL front, but with the World Juniors just around the corner, the national teams are gearing up for that. USA Hockey announced today that they’ve set their roster for their 2021 World Junior selection camp, and it includes Flyers prospects Bobby Brink and Cam York. You can check out the full 29-player roster below.

As returning players from the 2020 team, Brink and York both feel as close as possible as locks to make this year’s team, they will be their spots to lose. But assuming we do see them make the team, both should also figure to play more significant roles than they did in their first times around. Here’s hoping, at least.
The camp is set to kick off on December 6 in Plymouth, MI, and the final 25-player roster will be announced on December 13, before the team heads to Edmonton to enter their bubble. It’s all coming up quickly now!
The tournament is set to start on December 25, and you can find some more details on the selection camp here.
