Even though the Kings' season is over, hockey isn't over for defensemen Matt Greene and Jack Johnson. Both players will represent the U.S. at the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship, scheduled for May 7-23 in Germany.

Greene, 26, is not new to the event, having played for Team USA in 2007 and 2008. Johnson, 23, represented the U.S. during the Vancouver Olympics and came home with a silver medal. He also represented Team USA during the 2009 World Championship and the 2007 World Championship.

In addition, Darren Granger, the Kings' head equipment manager, will be a part of Team Canada’s training staff during the World Championship.
