Another of the impressive roster of Vegas Golden Knights prospects has been asked to a World Juniors selection camp. Vegas’ 2020 first-round pick Brendan Brisson has been invited to the Team USA Selection Camp for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship.
Brisson, a freshman at the University of Michigan, is looking to make the Team USA squad for the first time. The 19-year-old California native has a goal and three assists in six games for the Wolverines this season.
A total of 29 players will head to the Team USA training camp in Plymouth, Michigan. The final roster will feature 25 players who will head to Edmonton, Alberta for the tournament.
Team Canada invited Golden Knights prospects Peyton Krebs, Kaedan Korczak and Lukas Cormier to its selection camp, which is already under way. Korczak has two assists in two games for Team White. Cormier and Krebs have yet to register a point in two games for Team Red.
The tournament will be held in a bubble in Edmtonton, Alberta similar to the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Team USA’s first game will be at 7:30 pm MST against Team Russia on Christmas Day.
