Jon Merrill was again named to the World Juniors roster for Team USA, which is great, because he hadn't exactly been playing for Michigan. Hopefully he will soon finish doing what he has to in order to be reinstated to the team, but in the meantime this is a great way for him to get some highly competitive ice time. Also on the roster is Michigan recruit Jacob Trouba, a member of the NTDP Under 18 team, and the youngest player on the roster. Both goaltenders (Jack Campbell and John Gibson) are former M recruits. The best news is that Michigan doesn't lose any current players for the GLI, while Michigan's first GLI opponent, BC, loses forward Bill Arnold, who has 11 goals and 9 assists so far this year, more points than any Michigan player.
