Carter named to U.S. national team

Former MSU hockey standout Ryan Carter was named to the U.S. National Team that will play in the World Championships next month in Germany.

USA Hockey named the roster's first 12 players on Thursday.

The 26-year-old Carter, who left the Mavericks in 2006, finished his fourth season with the NHL's Anaheim Ducks. The center played in 38 games, scoring four goals and assisting on five others. Two of his goals came in the Ducks' season finale.

The World Championships will be held May 7-23 in Cologne, Gelsenkirchen and Mannheim, Germany.

Ian, I wouldn't be surprised if USA Hockey gives some of the non-Olympians a chance to play at Worlds. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Backes and other Olympians would even want to go to Worlds this year, considering they didn't get a break during the Olympics. It's probably been quite a grind for them.
