Penguins prospect forward Anthony Angello, whom Pittsburgh chose in the fifth round (145th overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft, was selected today to represent the United States at the World Junior A Challenge in December.
The tournament runs Dec. 14-20 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan. The U.S. has won five of the last six tournaments (2008-10, 2012-13).
Angello, 18, plays for the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League (USHL), where he has three goals and four points in 12 games this season.
Last year, the 6-foot-4, 197-pound Angello had 11 goals and 21 points in 58 games as a rookie with the Lancers.
Angello is committed to play college hockey at Cornell.
