Tyler Calvin approaches his place in the final list of the World Junior Championships in the United States

The Big Forks – Tyler Cleven is close to making the final shortlist for the US Junior World Championships.

The US hockey team made a round of cuts this week, but as expected, Kelvin stayed with the team.

The United States has two pieces left before the final slate for the event, which will strangely take place later this month, is decided.

The World Junior Championships, which features the world’s best under-20 players, is held annually in December and January. But last year’s event was postponed due to COVID-19 pros after the tournament had already started.

While the US is expected to keep much of the roster as is, there will be a few missing players, such as former UND defender Jake Sanderson. After the season, Sanderson signed a professional deal with the Ottawa Senators.

Kleven chose to go back to school in his junior season, which made him available to return to the World Juniors.

The Fargo product premiered at World Juniors during the 2020-21 season. Cleven and the Americans won the gold medal in the event.

If the United States wins gold again, Calvin will join Jonathan Toews as the only two UND players to win two golds at the Junior World Championships.
