Ryan Kesler continues to get recognition for his breakout season. Fresh from his first Selke nomination as the NHL’s best defensive forward, he was named today to Team USA’s orientation camp roster.

Among the forwards, Kesler joins guys like Scott Gomez, Chris Drury, Patrick Kane and Phil Kessel – not a bad group to be associated with. The rest of the roster is here.

Incidentally, David Backes was named to the roster as well. Maybe Kes will get a chance to say “hi” to Kelly in person.

    He’s going to look very good with that gold medal around his neck…and Luongo will look good with his silver too.

    U! S! A!

    If only Kesler could represent Canada… I hate rules. Technically he COULD represent Canada if he’d only not played for the US in the WJHC
