Ryan Suter and Colin Wilson named to Team USA

The roster for Team USA's entry at the Hockey World Championships has been announced, and Preds defenseman Ryan Suter is joined by Colin Wilson (who just won an NCAA title with Boston University) on the squad. Wilson is the only player not currently in the NHL selected for the team, which speaks volumes about his assessment as a prospect.

This will be a very interesting tournament to follow, as we watch for the first time how Wilson fares playing with (and against) top-level professional players.

It's no surprise to see Suter selected, as he has matured into an effective top-pair defenseman, with a career-high 38 assists this season for Nashville.
