CALGARY - Scoring an invite to the U.S. national junior team’s camp is nothing new to Johnny Gaudreau.

It’s the next step that the Calgary Flames prospect is looking to make.

Gaudreau, one of three Flames hopefuls chosen to attend this year’s camp, was a late cut from last year’s squad. So it’s hard to believe he won’t be part of the American team to go to world juniors later this month in Ufa, Russia.

“I thought it was a little bit of farce he didn’t make last year’s team, particularly when I saw the team,” said Flames assistant GM of player personnel Jonn Weisbrod. “I couldn’t believe they kept him off it."
