K’Andre Miller and Zac Jones have been selected to participate in the 2019 World Junior Summer Showcase, and both will skate on Team White.
#NYR prospect K'Andre Miller will be a member of Team USA's Team White for the upcoming 2019 World Junior Summer Showcase. The first game of the tournament takes place on July 27 in Plymouth, Michigan.— NYR Stats & Info (@NYRStatsInfo) July 9, 2019
The showcase has two different rosters, and it will play a role in determining the eventual team to represent the US at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship in the Czech Republic.
Miller is coming off a strong freshman season at Wisconsin, and tallied 22 points in 26 games. He also played for Team USA last year, so there’s a good chance he will make the team a second time.
Jones posted 52 points in 56 games with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL, and is going to play for UMass Amherst this season.
Here’s a look at the full roster of the two teams set to square off starting on July 27.
This list includes a blend of talent from the 2019 and 2018 drafts, and it is promising to see that Jones is someone who will get a chance to show what he can do.
