The U.S. men’s national team will add Boston Bruins goalkeeper Jeremy Swayman to its roster for the 2022 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.

Swayman will complete Team USA’s goalie trio that also includes Jon Gillies and Strauss Mann. He replaces Detroit’s Alex Nedeljkovic, who was originally foreseen on the World Championship roster but not registered due to injury.

The 23-year-old native of Anchorage, Alaska finished his second pro season in the organization of the Boston Bruins. He played 41 regular-season games (91.4% save percentage) and five playoff games (91.1%) in the NHL in 2021/2022.

In his only previous international experience he was part of the bronze-medal winning team at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship on home ice in Buffalo.

Swayman is expected to arrive in Tampere in time for Team USA’s next game on Thursday against Great Britain.
