UMaine's Swayman Makes U.S. World Junior Championship Team

ORONO, MAINE (WABI) - UMaine freshman goaltender Jeremy Swayman made the cut today and he'll represent the United States at the IIHF World Junior Championships this week in Buffalo, New York. The tournament runs from Tuesday through January, 5th. It means he will miss UMaine's series at Rensselaer. It's a big deal to make the team. Teammate Eduards Tralmaks played for Latvia last year at the World Juniors. But, Swayman is the first Black Bear to play for team USA at World Juniors since Maine's own Greg Moore in 2004 according to UMaine Athletics.
