Excitement is brewing for the Chicago Blackhawks and their fans as the world championships kick off in Prague, Czechia from May 10 to 26. Connor Bedard and Philip Kurashev will represent Canada and Switzerland respectively, but there's even bigger news on the horizon.

In a major announcement this morning, the Chicago Blackhawks revealed that defenseman Seth Jones and Alex Vlasic will be heading to Czechia to represent Team USA. This news comes as a shock, considering the star-studded lineups of the teams participating, featuring players like Zach Werenski, Luke Hughes, Cole Caulfield, Johnny Gaudreau, Brady Tkachuk, Trevor Zegras, and more, for a young rookie like Alex Vlasic to receive such an invitation is monumental.
While Jones's status and invite as one of the highest-paid defenseman is no surprise, the addition of Vlasic adds an exciting twist to Team USA's roster.
