The United States won the gold medal in the 2013 World Junior Championships with a 3-1 win over Sweden. This recap notes the even play of the game and highlights several U.S. players in the tourney, including New Jersey Devils prospect Blake Pietila
This post serves as a place where readers can discuss the 2013 WJC Gold Medal Game between Sweden and the United States, which will have New Jersey Devils prospect Blake Pietila on the third line.
Michigan defenseman Jon Merrill is notorious for off ice incidents keeping him off the ice. However, when he has played, he's been a dominant two-way player in college and has a high upside. Thus, we ranked Merrill #4 on our Top 25 Under 25 List.
Alexander Urbom has received a few games with the New Jersey Devils, while becoming a mobile, physical, and defensive defenseman in Albany. Between his skillset and that he's close to making it, we ranked him #5 on our Top 25 Devils Under 25 List.
Eric Gelinas had a very productive season as a rookie in Albany. Given the New Jersey Devils' lack of offensive defensemen, it's more of a reason to think highly Gelinas. Our writers certainly did, ranking him #7 on our Top 25 Devils Under 25 List.
The New Jersey Devils kept their 2012 first round pick and used it to take forward Stefan Matteau. He's got the size and enough talent where a NHL future seems likely. Learn about how he was ranked #10 on our Top 25 Devils Under 25 list.
Reece Scarlett has logged a lot of minutes at Swift Current and has become a productive defender in his time with the WHL team. His offensive skills helped drive our writers to name him #11 on our Top 25 Devils Under 25 list.
