The U.S. has compiled an impressive roster as it looks to get back into the medals after missing last year. Johnny Gaudreau, Jack Eichel, Brock Nelson, Jacob Trouba and Dylan Larkin are just a few of the more notable participants.
Today, the Americans will take on Germany, one of the two tournament hosts (France is the other).
Though the Germans are short on big-name talent — Thomas Greiss, Dennis Seidenberg and Tobias Rieder are the lone NHLers — they will be buoyed by a home crowd, as today’s game will be played at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne.
