U.S. keeps same lineup for gold-medal game

To no surprise, the United States will stick with the same lineup it had in Thursday's semifinal win against Canada for Saturday's gold-medal game against Sweden (8 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, TSN).

The top trio of J.T. Miller between John Gaudreau and Jimmy Vesey has combined for nine goals and 21 points in its last three games.

For its fourth-ever appearance in a World Junior Championship gold-medal game, here is the lineup the United States will go with:

John Gaudreau - J.T. Miller - Jimmy Vesey

Alex Galchenyuk - Sean Kuraly - Riley Barber

Blake Pietila - Cole Bardreau - Ryan Hartman

Rocco Grimaldi - Vincent Trocheck - Tyler Biggs

Mario Lucia

Jake McCabe - Seth Jones

Patrick Sieloff - Jacob Trouba

Mike Reilly - Connor Murphy

John Gibson will start in goal, with Jon Gillies the backup.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
