Friday in Plymouth, Michigan, USA Hockey will reveal the management and coaching staff for the 2018 Olympic team.
The announcement will come on the heels of Hockey Canada’s last week.
There will be no NHLers at the Games in South Korea. Pros playing in Europe and those on AHL-only contracts, as well as college players in the NCAA, can be considered.
Eligible college players include Casey Mittelstadt (Sabres), the eighth overall pick in 2017 who’s off to the University of Minnesota next season. A couple of BU Terriers, Kieffer Bellows (Islanders) and Jordan Greenway (Wild), should also be in the mix.
