    In this post-draft article, we learn Sabres scout Keith Hendrickson saw Borgen play a number of times in Moorhead. (Hendrickson's son plays at Concordia College in Moorhead.) Further, here are quotes from his soon-to-be coach:

    Royce: “He’s a big defenseman, skates very well, good hockey sense, moves the puck. He’s going to St. Cloud next year, four years to develop there. When he comes out, he’ll have another year, two years in the American League and then be ready to play for the big club.â€

    As expected, Borgen was paired with his USHL d-partner Schuldt in SCSU's 6-2 exhibition win over Alberta .. finished +1 with 0 SOG and a double-minor for cross-checking according to the boxscore .. on-ice for GF2, GA1, GF5, with the GA going in off a teammate's stick.

    In SCSU's 3-0 win over Alaska, Borgen finished even with 0 SOG .. on-ice for zero GF or GA .. looks like he's played RD2 with Widman, as Schuldt was bumped to LD1.

    i don't give him much of a shot of making the final cut, but very impressive to just make the preliminary roster.

    Per Bakes he's made a pretty smooth transition to D-1. He's spoken pretty highly of Will in his weekend updates too. Hopefully he can make it past the first cut, considering only Werenski, Carlo, and Krys seem to be locks.

    @SabresProspects -

    BIG congrats to Will Borgen for being named to the 2016 United States National Junior Team Preliminary Roster. Huge.
    Borgen has been impressive as a true freshman at SCSU. Kid can skate and move the puck, and uses his body well.
    Seamless transition to D1. So that gives the #Sabres two WJC candidates in Karabacek (CZE) and Borgen (USA).
    Karabacek was expected. Borgen a very pleasant surprise.

    Reminds me of the time that the majority of the board thought that the 5th round pick was a better prospect than the 4th round pick because... Well, just because. Congrats to Will. This is a big accomplishment.

    Have been impressed with Sabres defensive prospect Will Borgen (St. Cloud State). Broke up Alex DeBrincat/Matthew Tkachuk 2 on 1. Has been steady.

    I think only 4 spots on USA's D are "locks". Hopefully he can grab one of the final 3 spots, would be very impressive if he did.

    Didn't realize Team USA has six RHD, including Borgen, but only three LHD in camp. Throw in the fact that two of the RHD are returnees (Carlo, Collins), and they likely won't keep more than four RHD, Borgen is probably one of four RHD competing for two spots.

    Five Takeaways - First Day Of USA Hockey World Junior Championship Camp - Tuesday, December 15 - By Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer.

    5. Surprise! Surprise! - Defenseman William Borgen (Buffalo Sabres) of St. Cloud State University had a nice showing on opening day in breaking up a few odd-man rushes, including a 2-on-1 against Tkachuk and DeBrincat. In addition to the top line of Tkachuk, Matthews and DeBrincat, the fifth line of Eansor, Keller and Hitchcock provided a lot of energy and enthusiasm each shift. Wilson even had the line matched against Matthews during a scrimmage.

    Really hope this kid can make the team. With Karabacek breaking his thumb he could be our only prospect in the tournament.

    Good stuff. Would be great if he made the cut. With Karabacek injured, I'm pretty sure Borgen is the only Sabre prospect that has a chance to be in the WJCs.

    Recorded the only assist on Milano's second goal in a 4-0 win in the UMass exhibition. Really hope he makes it. His rise from out of nowhere is a fun story to watch develop.

    From thinking he was another year away from NCAA hockey to here in the blink of an eye.
