Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel highlight a star-studded under-23 North American team that will compete at the World Cup of Hockey in September.

This team is young, but they will have a chance to make some noise. The curiosity factor should be high when they take to the ice for the first time.

The first 16 players were named to the team today, while the remainder of the roster will be announced by June 1.

No Canucks players were named to the team, although Bo Horvat and Ben Hutton could be candidates to fill in the roster.

  • John Gibson, Anaheim Ducks
  • Connor Hellebuyck, Manitoba Moose (AHL)

Defencemen

  • Seth Jones, Columbus Blue Jackets

  • Dylan Larkin, Detroit Red Wings
