Ottawa Senators prospect Jake Sanderson has been named to the USA's 2022 Olympics roster.

Sanderson has impressed so far this season for North Dakota where he has six goals and 22 points in just 17 games.

His 22 points are the second most among blueliners in the NCAA while his 1.29 points-per-game average is the best among collegiate d-men.

The 19-year-old's 16 assists this season are the 13th most in the NCAA and are third best among defencemen.

It will be the second time in 2022 Sanderson will represent his country; he was named captain of the USA's 2022 World Juniors team before the tournament was cancelled after his team had played one game. 

On Wednesday, he was named a nominee for the 2022 Hobey Baker Award. 

Men's hockey at the 2022 Olympics takes place from Feb. 10-20 in Beijing, China.
