Greene joins Team USA squad for Worlds
Andy Greene
Devils defenseman Andy Greene has been added to the 2010 U.S. Men's National Team that will compete at the International Ice Hockey Federation World Men's Championship, May 7-23, in Cologne, Gelsenkirchen and Mannheim, Germany. The announcement was made Thursday by USA Hockey.

It will be Greene's Team USA debut. He's coming off career highs of six goals, 31 assists and 37 points in 2009-10. Never drafted, the Trenton, Mich., native played his college hockey at Miami University (Ohio).

Joe Sacco, head coach of the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and a finalist for the 2010 Jack Adams Award as the league's coach of the year, joins the coaching staff as an assistant coach.

Highlighting the additions is defenseman Jack Johnson (Ann Arbor, Mich./Los Angeles Kings/Univ. of Michigan), who was a member of the silver medal-winning 2010 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team. A Team USA veteran, Johnson is making his third appearance on a U.S. Men's National Team (2007, 2009). In addition to his recent silver at the Olympic Winter Games, Johnson has captured three medals at IIHF World Championships, including the gold medal with the 2005 U.S. Men's National Under-18 Team, the silver medal with the 2004 U.S. Men's National Under-18 Team and the bronze medal with the 2007 U.S. National Junior Team. Johnson was also a member of the 2006 U.S. National Junior Team.

Other members of Team USA with U.S. Men's National Team experience include defenseman Matt Greene (Grand Ledge, Mich./Los Angeles Kings/Univ. of North Dakota/2007, 2008) and forwards Nick Foligno (Buffalo, N.Y./Ottawa Senators/2009) and T.J. Oshie (Warroad, Minn./St. Louis Blues/Univ. of North Dakota/2009). Greene was also a member of the 2003 U.S. National Junior Team and the 2001 U.S. Men's National Under-18 Team, while Oshie played for the 2006 U.S. National Junior Team.

In addition, Chris Kreider (Boxford, Mass./Boston College), who helped the U.S. to the gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship, will make his first U.S. Men's National Team appearance.

Other players making their Team USA debuts include: goaltenders Ben Bishop (Des Peres, Mo./Peoria Rivermen/Univ. of Maine) and David Leggio (Buffalo, N.Y./TPS Turku/Clarkson Univ.); defenseman Keith Yandle (Boston, Mass./Phoenix Coyotes); and forwards T.J. Galiardi (Denver, Colo./Colorado Avalanche/Dartmouth College) and Tim Kennedy (Buffalo, N.Y./Buffalo Sabres/Michigan State Univ.).
