The 2017 World Junior Summer Showcase will take place at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan, from July 28-Aug. 5, 2017. The week-long camp will include 12 international competitions between Canada, Finland, Sweden and the United States in preparation for the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship that will take place Dec. 26, 2017 - Jan. 5, 2018, in Buffalo, New York.

The United States National Junior Team is the men's national under-20 ice hockey team that represents the United States at the International Ice Hockey Federation World Under-20 Championship (commonly referred to as the IIHF World Junior Championship). The 10-nation tournament features the world's best men's players under 20 years of age and is a 31-game event that takes place over the course of 10 days.

To date, the U.S. National Junior Team has claimed 10 medals, including four gold medals (2017, 2013, 2010, 2004), one silver medal (1997) and five bronze medals (2016, 2011, 2007, 1992, 1986). Notable players to have skated for the U.S. National Junior Team include Hockey Hall of Fame members Chris Chelios, Phil Housley, Mark Howe, Brian Leetch and Mike Modano, as well as seven first overall NHL Draft picks, including Auston Matthews, who was selected first overall at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
