Update, 4:17 p.m.:
TSN reports that Team Canada GM Mark Messier has added Michael Del Zotto to the World Championship roster.
Del Zotto joins fellow Rangers defenseman Marc Staal on the team.
...when rumors originally circulated that Del Zotto may be on the team I was against it. But he's a young guy who could use the "Big Stage" experience. Looking forward to watching him play.
Kevin Allen at USA Today reports that Rangers prospect Chris Kreider will join Brandon Dubinsky and Matt Gilroy on the US team that will play in next month's World Hockey Championship in Germany.
...wow. I didn't expect this.
...if the US team wins the gold then Kreider will have a National Championship, World Junior Championship and a World Championship in the same year. Would that mean Stanley Cup for the Rangers if Kreider is on the team next season?
