USA Hockey announced the 2012 World Championships roster Wednesday afternoon. The State of Hockey produced four of the 17 players in the lineup -- nearly one-fourth of the entire roster.
Kyle Okposo (New York Islanders), Justin Faulk (Carolina Hurricanes), Alex Goligoski (Dallas Stars) and J.T. Brown (Tampa Bay Lightning) will pack their bags and get ready for some more hockey.
Two those will be on the blue line, two at the forward position. Two of them are former Gophers, two are former Bulldogs.
All four will don the Red, White and Blue in Finland from May 4-20 for the big tourney.
