The main is without a doubt the Chicago Blackhawks captain Patrick Kane, who also was with the americans last year in Herning.
In this season, the 30-year-old center actually been better than ever, with 110 points in 81 matches.
in Addition, the u.s. offensive is complemented by 22-year-old Jack Eichel, who this season has made 82 points in 77 games for the Buffalo Sabres.
another hot gentleman is Frans Nielsen's teammate in Detroit Red Wings Dylan Larkin. Also, he is 22 years old, and almost as sharp as Eichel with 73 points this season.
All are top performers in their clubs and then leading a terrific offense, which also counts stars like James van Riemsdyk and Chris Kreider.
In the defensive department is the profile the Minnesota Wilds Ryan Suter, while on målmandssiden missing the big star. Although Cory Schneider is a great name, but the 33-year-old keeper clearly has its best time behind itself.
There is preliminary taken 17 american players, and there is room for 25 in the WORLD cup squad.
The Danish team has even received some apologies from a series of profiles.
Frans Nielsen has refused, and the same with Philip Larsen. Nielsen has been the father of her second child, while Larsen's first heir has just come into the world.
Also the German profile Mads Christensen in need of a break on the national team, while also Patrick Bjorkstrand and Nichlas Hardt has signed off.
Jannik Hansen - who currently plays for CSKA Moscow, which is in the LEROY-finale - questionable.
To the contrast, there is justified hope to see Mikkel Bødker in the WORLD cup squad. He has played a fine season for the Ottawa Senators, but struggling right now with a minor injury.
Denmark plays its first WORLD cup match 11. may, where the opponent is France. Next, waiting for Germany, the Uk, Finland, USA, Canada and eventually the host country Slovakia.
