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
Jake McCabe - Seth Jones
Patrick Sieloff - Jacob Trouba
Mike Reilly - Connor Murphy
John Gibson will start in goal, with Jon Gillies the backup.
