Two more Devils have joined Team USA for the 2016 world championships.

Forward Miles Wood and defenseman David Warsofsky were named to the squad on Thursday, bringing to 16 the roster that will compete at the IIHF Men's World Championship in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia from May 6 to 22.

Wood and Warsofsky join goaltender Keith Kinkaid, who was added on Tuesday, and head coach John Hynes. Devils' video assistant Matt DeMado on Friday was named Team USA's video coordinator.

Warsofsky will be seeking his third medal with a U.S. National Team. In addition to helping the U.S. National Junior Team capture a gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship in Saskatoon and Regina, Saskatchewan, Warsofsky captained the bronze medal-winning U.S. Men's National Under-18 Team at the 2008 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship in Kazan, Russia.

Warsofsky, 25, was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh on Feb. 29 and appeared in 10 games with New Jersey, collecting one assist. The Marshfield, Mass., product totaled two points (1g-1a) in 22 games this season with the Devils and Penguins.

Wood will be skating for the U.S. a second time after representing Team USA in the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship in Montreal and Toronto, Canada.

The 20-year-old Wood signed an entry-level deal with New Jersey on April 8 and debuted in the Devils’ regular-season finale, registering two shots and one hit. A fourth-round pick in 2013, Wood scored 10 goals and 25 assists this season as a freshman with Boston College (HE) before reaching the Frozen Four.

The U.S. Men's National Team now includes eight forwards, five defensemen and three goaltenders.
