Wearing the red, white and blue

Last week, we noted that Colin Wilson (photo), now preparing with Team USA for the World Junior Championships, was a projected first round draft choice in 2008. takes a detailed look at Wilson’s strengths and weaknesses in an interview that includes some very candid and self-aware comments from Wilson. We’ve also come across a recent Q&A interview with Wilson, written by a contributor to the Web site and posted on the message board.

Meanwhile, Wilson’s Team USA teammate, Brian Strait’s leadership skills are the subject of a profile, while New England Hockey Journal looks at the region’s four Team USA representatives.

USA Hockey has posted an All Access Pass to its comprehensive information about and links to the IIHF World Junior Championships that begin this week in The Czech Republic and a link to a USA Hockey-WJC blog. All of Team USA's games, beginning with Wednesday’s first-round match against Kazakhstan, will be audiocast on the USA Hockey Web site . Medal round games will be broadcast on the NHL Network. Team USA Coach John Hynes, current NTDP U18 coach and a member of BU's 1995 national championship team, is profiled in the Team USA media guide, along with all team members.
