Goodluck to the fellas as they travel to Finland tomorrow. Early flight back home this morning #bitterdisappointment #USAWJC — Stefan Noesen (@ScubaShteve93) December 17, 2012 While there's been nothing official from either the IIHF or USA Hockey this morning, the above tweet speaks for itself.  In a report from Adam Kimelman of NHL.com yesterday, Team USA general Manager sounded a semi-optimistic note on the matter: "It's still a pending situation, and in fairness to everybody that's involved in it right now I really don't have much more of a comment. In our opinion it's pending. It's a matter that's not closed and we're working on that. We hope to have a resolution on that before we leave here. There's a lot of conversations. Ultimately he has to be eligible for an IIHF tournament. We're working on it as best we can. It takes a lot of communication with a lot of people right now. It's a little bit of a uncharted territory for everybody. All I can say is I'm working on it as hard as I can. And I've been happy with the cooperation but it's a difficult position for everybody and everyone involved is giving it the right diligence right now." It appears 12 hours after those qoutes were published, USA Hockey got their 'resolution'. For Senators fans hoping to indulge their prospect porn fix with TSN’s glorious HD broadcasts, this news is bunk. Just a short time ago, it seemed possible that some combination of the organization’s first rounders – ie. Matt Puempel, Noesen, Mika Zibanejad, and Cody Ceci – could or would be participating in this year’s tournament. Now, we’re just left with Mikael Wikstrand. Ah well, Bingo streams are pretty great too...I guess. Update: And the official word via Chris Peters: USA Hockey officially announced that Stefan Noesen has been declared ineligible for the World Junior Championship by the IIHF #2013WJC — Chris Peters (@chrismpeters) December 17, 2012
