USA vs Latvia Preview
Team USA sports plenty of NHL players in the quest for gold at the International Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship in Finland.
The U.S., which opens with Latvia on Friday, looks to end an 89-year gold medal drought at the world championships. Team USA won it in 1933 but has only won silver or bronze since. The U.S. went 8-2 in the tournament last year and took home bronze.
USA forward Austin Watson, who plays for the Ottawa Senators, hopes to help end that drought.
“There’s no bigger honor than to represent your country at any tournament. For me, it’s been a little while,” Watson said via Red Line Editorial’s Bob Reinert. “There’s a lot of pride in that. There’s a lot of excitement that goes into that.”
NHL players on the USA roster besides Watson include Alex Galchenyuk of the Arizona Coyotes, Seth Jones of the Chicago Blackhawks, Kieffer Bellows of the New York Islanders, and Nate Schmidt of the Winnipeg Jets. Jones, Watson, and Schmidt serve as captains for Team USA.
“We’re very fortunate, U.S. head coach David Quinn via Reinert about the captains with NHL experience, “three guys that have an awful lot of respect throughout the … NHL, guys that have really embraced the leadership role before we named them captains. We really feel like our leadership group’s in good hands.”
Latvia has NHL talent, too. That includes Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Elvis Merzlikins and San Jose Sharks forward Rudolfs Balcers.
“You want to start off on the right foot,” Bellows said via Reinert. “You want to solidify yourself as playing the right way, no matter who you play, so that’s a good game for us to just go out there and show the way we’re going to play the whole tournament.”
Team USA will play in Group B for the preliminary round. Opponents include Latvia, Austria Finland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, and Czechia.
