Wisconsin defenseman Jack Dougherty was among three cuts made to the U.S. World Junior Team after Friday’s exhibition game at Boston University.
The others let go were forwards Adam Erne of the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts and Michael McCarron of the OHL’s London Knights.
The cuts leave 20 college players or recruits among the 27 left on the U.S. roster. The team must be cut to 23 players by the Dec. 26 start of the World Junior Championship.
Dougherty had an assist in the Americans’ 5-2 victory over Boston University on Friday.
