Two More Blueshirts Headed to the World Championships

It looks like the New York Rangers will be well represented at the World Championships as it was announced yesterday that both Team USA and Team Canada added a Ranger to their roster. Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants has more:

Rangers prospect Chris Kreider, so good in leading Team USA to the gold at the World Junior Championships, was among 11 players added to the roster by USA Hockey for the IIHF World Championships, May 7-23 in Germany.

Kreider will join Brandon Dubinsky (who turned 24 today) and Matt Gilroy on Team USA.

Meanwhile, Canada general manager Mark Messier announced Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto as one of four players added to his roster today. Del Zotto (who remains a teenager until June 24) is one of six players on the Canadian squad under 20. Rangers teammate Marc Staal is also on the Canadian roster.
