For the sixth time in his young hockey career, Jack Eichel of the Buffalo Sabres will represent Team USA.  This time he’ll be competing with some of the best players from around the world at the International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship taking place next month in Cologne, Germany and Paris, France.

This year’s team is a combination of college players and players from NHL teams that failed to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  Eichel also played on the 2015 U.S. Men’s National Team and earned a bronze medal at the World Championship in the Czech Republic.

Prior to that, Eichel played on the U.S. National Under-18 Team and won a gold medal at the 2014 World Championships in Finland and a silver medal at the same event in Sochi, Russia in 2013.  Eichel also played on the 2014 and 2015 U.S. National Junior Teams.

Coming off his second season with the Buffalo Sabres, Eichel finished with a career high 57 points (24 goals, 33 assists) in 61 games.  Before being selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, Eichel had become just the second freshman to win the Hobey Baker Award, emblematic of the best player in college hockey.
