On Wednesday night, March 2nd 2016, there was the unveiling of the jerseys and preliminary rosters for all the teams competing in the World Cup of Hockey.
For the Blue Jackets, three players made it onto Team North America, a team that makes up the best players ranging between the ages of 18-23, but not over 24.
Ryan Murray, Seth Jones, and Brandon Saad are the three Blue Jackets that make up this squad. They all deserved being on this roster. All three have been in the playoffs before, but not on the same team. Jones was in the playoffs in Nashville; Saad with Chicago; and Murray with Columbus. Saad has also won the Stanley Cup at his young age.
What are your thoughts on the teams and the jerseys? Who surprises you on the roster? Who should be on?
More to come…
