Team USA defenseman Mike Reilly may not be the most heralded defender among the group that the USA has iced at the 2013 World Junior Championship, but he has played like he belongs with a defensive group that has been the best of any country at this WJC.
The defense for Team USA at the 2013 World Junior Championship has been very offensive, in a good way. The seven defensemen that have suited up for that country have totaled 10 goals and 17 assists so far in the tournament, with only the gold medal game left to contest.
To those that follow NCAA hockey, seeing John Gaudreau's name among the goal-scoring leaders at the 2013 World Junior Championship is not a big surprise. The Boston College forward has been tearing it up offensively this season after helping lead that team to a National Championship in 2012 in his freshman season.
