Warsofsky and Nicastro continue on WJC roster.

David Warsofsky and Max Nicastro survived the first round of cuts from the Jr. National Team roster on Sunday, but Vinny Saponari was among those sent home. Warsofsky served as a co-captain of team USA in its 4-2 exhibition game win over North Dakota on Sunday. Nicastro made an impression dishing out some big hits.

Brandon Yip made the scoresheet in his NHL debut Saturday against Columbus, taking a minor penalty in the Avs 5-2 win. Yip had 6:39 in ice time and wore uniform #59.

Matt Gilroy was recalled to the Rangers from Hartford after five games with the Knights.

Looking ahead
Adam Clendening netted two goals to lead the U18s past Youngstown, 9-3 on Saturday night. He now has a 6-10-16 scoring line. Matt Nieto, who had a pair the previous evening against Cedar Rapids, registered two assisted, including one on Clendening’s second goal of the evening. Nieto leads the U18s with 12-14-26 in 29 games.

Fellow recruit Charlie Coyle, who joined the U18s briefly for the Four Nations’ Cup in Finland last month, is the subject a feature piece in New England Hockey Journal that focuses as much on his leadership qualities as the skills that should make him a high NHL draft choice in June. Coyle scored his 12th goal of the season against Bridgewater Saturday night as South Shore entered the break tied for the best record in the EJHL.
