Stars lottery pick Jack Campbell will lead the U.S. Junior national team in the World Junior Hockey Championships December 26 through January 5. Campbell was the first goaltender (11th overall pick) taken in the 2010 draft and currently plays for the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League.
There is another local tie on this roster - Chris Brown of Flower Mound. Brown was a second round pick (36th overall) in the 2009 draft and currently attends the University of Michigan. He is a 6-2 right wing with a physical game and is one of the first "true" Texans to develop into an NHL caliber talent.
The US team won the 2010 WJHC (their second title) in a thrilling 6-5 OT victory over Canada in Saskatchewan. This year's tournament will be played in Buffalo.
