If not when?
Was Ryan Kesler named already?
usa hockey hasn't official announced any additional players since the preliminary roster...the rest of the roster was supposed to be named dec 2nd so i don't know what the hold up is
Yes.... he was named (along with Dustin Brown) back when USA released their initial roster with I believe 16 players on it.
so, if there is one spot still left it isn't for Brown because he is already there, if he isn't released then a spot will open up, same for Kesler
Where is this roster? I can't even find it on the USA Hockey site. Thanks.

USHR.com has some info on who it seems will be added to the roster.They're going with 12 forwards and 8 defensemen. In addition to those already named, Danny Richmond and Dylan Reese have been added on defense and Danny Fritsche and Brady Murray have been added at forward. The remaining spots at forward will be taken by two of Jake Dowell, Drew Stafford, and David Booth with the first two being the favorites.
IMO, the two most surprising omissions are Hugh Jessiman and Rob Schremp.
Thanks for the info. I'm familiar with Richmond, Stafford and Booth. Any info on Dowell and Reese? I'm still perplexed by the Schremp omission. I hope a decent reason is offered by USA Hockey in the near future.
the preliminary roster includes Dustin Brown and Ryan Kesler and as far as i know the kings and canucks have not agreed to make them available yet...so that could open up 2 additional forward spots
Does anyone know anything about Brad Murray? Who he plays for? Size Weight all that? HE wasn't ont he preliminary roster was he?
reese was picked in the 7th round by the rangers this summer...offensive dman on the smallish side (5'11 195), currently a freshmen at harvard
last years playing for pittsburgh forge (NAHL) scored 41 points in 56 games...was alternate captain as the forge took home the regular season crown, playoff championship and USA Hockey national championship, and was named to the NAHL All-star squad and NAHL Dman of the Year
here is a quote from the forge's former gm
here is one article on him from draft time
i believe that kevin constantine was his coach last year and i remember reading an article with him raving about reese, but i can't find it
why Hennessy don't play for the US squad ?
Here's the thread on the Schremp omission. Not shockingly, money and politics have to do with it, apparently.
Thanks, but I started that thread! :p
I just got a stupid mark.
that's what i'd like to know. after starting off slow, i bleieve he is now 9th in Q scoring. what gives? any info, or ideas as to why he is not on the club?
Do you mean Brady Murray? Brady Murray plays for the North Dakota Fighting Sioux. He's 5'9 and 180 lbs. And no he was not on the preliminary roster since he was originally going to represent Canada. He is second in team scoring with 15 points in 11 games.
Dylan Reese is an NYR prospect, he plays for Harvard.
Jake Dowell is a forward who plays for Wisconsin. He'll be draft eligible this coming summer and the CSB preliminary rankings has him ranked 12th among all NCAA skaters.
Dowell is an excellent 2-way Center. He's already the guy at Wisconsin that Eaves has on the ice for all the big faceoffs at the end of the game. He's also probably the top Penality killing forward on the team.
