Denver’s Zucker named captain of U.S. World Junior squad

Denver sophomore forward Jason Zucker has been named captain of the 2012 U.S. National Junior Team.

Zucker will be playing in his third World Junior tournament, having skated with the gold medal-winning 2010 team in Saskatoon, Sask., and with the bronze medal-winning U.S. squad last year in Buffalo.

Team USA’s alternate captains are forward Emerson Etem (Medicine Hat Tigers) and defenseman Jarred Tinordi (London Knights), two U.S. NTDP alumni.

Etem also earned a bronze medal with Team USA last year, while Tinordi is making his first U.S. National Junior Team appearance.
