Kings, Ducks represented on Team USA for world junior hockey championships
Derek Forbort, the Kings' first-round draft pick in June, and Ducks prospects Emerson Etem of Long Beach and Kyle Palmieri were chosen for Team USA's roster for the world junior hockey championships, which start Sunday in Buffalo, N.Y.
The U.S. upset Canada to win the last tournament, leaving Canadian hockey fans fretting. It's a huge deal, especially in Canada, and has been a proving ground for many prominent NHL players.
Team USA's games will be shown on the NHL Network, giving fans a chance to watch future NHL stars.
Here's the entire roster.
Incidentally, Kings prospect Brayden Schenn scored a beautiful goal for Canada against Sweden in an exhibition Tuesday.
