Gillies, Sieloff among players on final US WJC evaluation camp roster

CALGARY, AB -- USA Hockey trimmed its National Junior Evaluation Camp roster to 31 players on Tuesday morning and Calgary Flames prospects Jon Gillies and Patrick Sieloff remain at camp.

The camp is the first step in evaluating players for the 2014 World Junior Championship tournament.

The final roster will play exhibition games against Sweden (Wednesday), Finland (Thursday), and Canada (Saturday) this week.

"As a staff, we have been happy with the players' intensity and compete level," Jim Johannson, USA Hockey's assistant executive director of hockey operations and the general manager of the 2014 U.S. National Junior Team, told USA Hockey. "The players released today will continue to be evaluated this fall for Team USA. For the players that are staying, the games this week give us an opportunity to continue assessing them."

Both Gillies and Sieloff were a part of the 2013 American squad that captured gold in Ufa, Russia.
