U.S. adds three Flames to bolster their shot for world title

by Staff @NHLFlames /

Team USA has scored a hat-trick of Flames to suit up for them at the upcoming IIHF World Hockey Championship.

Johnny Gaudreau, Noah Hanifin and Derek Ryan will don the Red, White and Blue at the tournament that runs from May 10-26 in the cities of Bratislava and Kosice. The playoff round will begin on May 23.

Fellow American Matthew Tkachuk had already ruled out playing in the tournament out as he is set to become an RFA this summer.
