As the 2023 Hlinka Gretzky Cup approaches, USA Hockey has announced its roster for the highly anticipated tournament set to run from July 31st to August 5th. This competition holds significant importance for the United States team, aiming to medal after their last success in 2016 when they lost in the Gold Medal game to the then-Czech Republic.

But, it appears that they are quite Doomed after their roster was released.

F Colin Frank (Anaheim, T1EHL)

G Thatcher Bernstein (Noble & Greenough, USHL)
G Caleb Heil (Sioux Falls, USHL)
G Kam Henrickson (Chanhassen High, USHS)

Since their fourth-place finish in 2018, the team has been eager to return to the semi-final stage. The roster is filled with promising young talents, including forwards Trevor Connelly and Mac Swanson, who are considered strong options for the upcoming NHL Draft, but compared to Canada's roster, they are doomed.

The pressure is on for Team USA to prove their mettle on the international stage.
