2013-14: Roslovic joined the USA Hockey NTDP in Ann Arbor — skating for the program’s U17 squad — and played for the USA U17 that captured a gold medal at the 2014 World Hockey Challenge.  In August 2013 he committed to playing college hockey at Miami University in 2015-16. In 54 regular season games for the NTDP squad he scored 14 goals with 18 assists and 30 penalty minutes. Roslovic scored 2 goals with 4 assists and 14 penalty minutes in six games at the WHC. The USA defeated Canada Pacific, 4-0, in the gold medal game. 

2014-15: Roslovic returned to Ann Arbor to play for the NTDP U18 team and was a member of the gold medal-winning USA U18 team at the 2015 World Junior Championship. The NTDP’s fourth-leading scorer in the regular season, he scored 27 goals with 52 assists and 28 penalty minutes in 65 games. He scored 6 goals with 5 assists and was +11 with 4 penalty minutes in seven games at the World Juniors. The USA defeated Finland, 2-1, in the gold medal game. Roslovic played for Team Grier in the 2014 All-American Prospects Game and was invited to the NHL Prospects Combine in June. He was ranked 39th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings prior to the 2015 NHL Draft.

Most draft pundits point to the 2016 draft, front-loaded with players from the United States like Auston Matthews, Logan Brown, and Matt Tkachuk, as one that the Americans could dominate early on. But teams won’t have to look too far outside of the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft to find the next wave of U.S. talent pushing for playing time in the NHL. Read more»

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). Read more»

When it comes to USA Hockey’s U18 team, coming off gold in Belarus, gold in Germany, gold in the Czech Republic, silver in Russia and then gold again in Finland, there is little the program accepts other than excellence at the U18 level. Read more»
