Swayman Named to 2018 U.S. National Junior Team Preliminary Roster

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – University of Maine men's ice hockey freshman Jeremy Swayman has been named to the U.S. National Junior Team preliminary roster for the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Junior Championship, as announced today by USA Hockey.

The goaltender will attend the U.S. pre-tournament camp in Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 15-19, which will be used as part of the selection process ahead of the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship. From the 28-player preliminary roster, a final roster of 23 players will don the U.S. sweater at the tournament, which is to be played in Buffalo, N.Y. from Dec. 26-Jan. 5. Team USA will play its preliminary-round games against Denmark, Slovakia, Canada and Finland.

Swayman, who was the November Hockey East Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Month runner-up, is 5-3-1 on the year with a .925 save percentage and 2.38 goals against average. His save percentage ranks him 11th in the country and second among rookies. He was also named the Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week on Nov. 20 after backstopping the Black Bears to a 5-2 win over then No. 19 Boston University with 40 saves.

The Anchorage, Alaska native is one of three goaltenders on the roster, joining Boston University's Jake Oettinger and Boston College's Joseph Woll.

The U.S. will compete in pre-tournament games against Belarus on Dec. 20 at the Northwest Arena in Jamestown, N.Y., where it will also train from Dec. 20-22. Team USA will then face Sweden for its final pre-tournament game on Dec. 22.

UMaine Goalie Swayman Speaks About US World Junior Chance

ORONO, MAINE (WABI) - UMaine goalie Jeremy Swayman has been emerging as elite, not only with the Black Bears but nationally.

The freshman will train with the U.S. team for the World Junior Tournament. The camp starts at the end of next week while school is on break.

The World Junior Tournament starts the day after Christmas. Playing on the U.S. team would mean missing one weekend of UMaine games. The R.P.I. series in late December.

Bruins Prospect Swayman Thriving at Maine
Jeremy Swayman earned a spot on USA Hockey's preliminary roster for 2018 World Juniors

...Over the last three games, all wins, Swayman has stopped 134 of the 143 shots he’s faced. He stopped 95 shots during this past weekend’s sweep at Quinnipiac, including 50 in Friday’s comeback victory.

“It’s tough when you only have two to three shots a period and then all of a sudden you get bombarded. Having consistent rubber the whole game helps me. With my mental game, I just try to take it one shot at a time. Seeing a lot of rubber helps me stay in the game,” said Swayman.

After a rocky first collegiate outing, it’s been a steady climb for the Anchorage, Alaska, native who now holds a .927 save percentage for the Black Bears, a program that hasn't been above .500 at the semester break since the 2013-14 season.
