Katie Strang at ESPN.com reports that Derek Stepan, Mark Messier, Jeff Gorton and Mike Sullivan were among the spectators at Team USA World Junior Camp being held at the MSG Training Facility this week. Rangers prospects at the camp include JT Miller (2011 - 1st) and Brady Skjei (2012 - 1st). Chris Peters at the United States of Hockey previews Miller and Skjei's chances of making the final roster... Brady Skjei (NYR) — University of Minnesota — 15 GP, 1-1–2, 6 PIM Skjei has had some struggles in his freshman campaign, but his physical tools have remained evident. His high-end skating and good, solid frame keep him in the mix for the team. As long as he can play with some confidence, Skjei is a very good defender who can chip in offensively on occasion. J.T. Miller (NYR) — RW — Connecticut Whale — 26 GP, 5-9–14, 25 PIM December has been Miller’s best month as a pro with seven points in eight games. It looks like he’s really starting to get the hang of the pro game, which should play to his advantage when he returns to his own age group at the WJC. With prior World Junior experience, he will be another one of those absolute key forwards. Peters adds that Skjei will likely be fighting with two others for the final two spots on Team USA's defense. ...Miller is obviously a lock to make the squad, but Skjei is going to need a stellar few days during camp to make the final roster. Really pulling for the kid as the experience will do wonders for his development. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
