Jack Eichel will represent Team USA at the 2017 IIHF World Championship in Cologne, Germany and Paris, France this May, USA Hockey announced on Wednesday afternoon. He joins Sabres goaltending prospect Cal Petersen, who was included on the initial roster announcement on April 13.

Eichel played his junior hockey with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich., and has played for Team USA at a number of levels, including his participation at the 2015 World Championship. He scored seven points (2+5) in 10 games in that tournament en route to a bronze medal.

Ryan O'Reilly (Canada) and Zemgus Girgensons (Latvia) have both expressed their intent to participate in the tournament, which begins on May 5.
