Team USA had a mostly successful run through the preliminary round of the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship, winning three of their four contests while outscoring their opponents, 30 goals to 8. The one blemish on the USA’s record is their opening 3-1 loss to Russia, the team they are presently tied with at the top of Group A (pending the result of Russia’s game vs. Sweden).

Given their 30 goals scored in just four games, the U.S. is currently dominating the list of top scorers at this U18. One of those offensive stalwarts for Team USA is forward Jack Roslovic, who competed for the U.S. NTDP squad this season. In four U18 games, Roslovic has tallied five goals and three assists including a hat trick in today’s 13-1 win over Germany.

Roslovic is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft. He is ranked 39th in NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings after having been ranked 52nd in CSS’s midterm rankings.

Hockey’s Future spoke with Roslovic following his country’s 10-0 win over Slovakia, a conversation that is featured in this HF video.
