SkjeiTomorrow at 11:30AM, Brady Skjei and Team USA will play their first game of the World Junior Championships in Sweden.

Skjei was one of the last cuts from last year’s gold medal winning team and said (NHL.com) that his game has progressed, he is a smarter defenseman, a two-way defenseman that he was told he would be a shutdown guy this season.

A teammate at Minnesota told NHL.com that Skjei is one of the best skaters he has seen, that Skjei has a great stride and is unbelievably fast and can go from end to end easily.

He said that he learned how to skate like he has because his uncle is a skating coach with the Minnesota Wild.
