USA Hockey announced their National Junior Team Preliminary Roster. The roster includes 16 forwards, 9 defenders, and 4 goaltenders, none of which include Winnipeg Jets' prospects Kyle Connor or Jack Roslovic.

The Jets fan in me feels it necessary to point out, however, that USA Hockey is leaving some of their best U20 talent at home for the 2016 World Junior Championship, which could hurt them.

The Jets will look to keep the good feeling going today against the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks. 

The Jets and Blackhawks will meet twice in the next six days, both games being in Chicago. The Jets have played the Blackhawks once already this season; a 3-1 Jets win at the MTS Centre.
