LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Phil Housley, who will coach the U.S. team at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship, gave two words of warning to the 45 players who were invited to the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp: Come prepared.

After a week that saw his players skate in intrasquad games as well as contests against Finland and Sweden, Housley said he thought it was a productive time.

"I was pleased about the whole week," Housley said. "Especially after the first couple days, it seemed like we were a little sluggish. (It) seemed like our games picked up in the third game and the international competition. I was very pleased by their effort. (I) talked to them, sent out the letter in June, to come prepared, and for the most part all of these guys worked hard and came prepared for this camp."

After two intrasquad games and two split-squad games, Housley and the USA Hockey staff trimmed the initial group of 45 to 34 and went 2-1 in international games. The highlight was a 10-2 win against Sweden, the 2012 WJC champions, on Thursday. Team USA also split a pair of games against Finland, winning 5-2 on Wednesday and losing 3-2 in overtime on Saturday, the final day of camp.

After serving as an assistant coach for two bronze medal-winning efforts at the Under-20 World Junior Championship for the U.S. National Junior Team, seven-time NHL All-Star Phil Housley will now be gunning for gold as the head coach at the 2013 WJC in Ufa, Russia.

Housley, who retired from the game in 2004 following 21 NHL seasons, on Monday was introduced as Team USA's head coach during a USA Hockey media teleconference.

"Phil has worn the jersey for us in Russia … it's a different place to play, a different environment, and the history that Phil has as a player there will carry over into his coaching and everything that goes into it with the players," U.S. National Junior Team general manager Jim Johannson said. "It is unique to go into Russia and to play in a world championship event, and I think that is another part that sets Phil apart from other people."

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
