The United States Premier Hockey League is proud to announce that two players who have played in the Nation's Largest Amateur Hockey Organization, the USPHL, were named to Team USA's World Junior Championship roster.  

Former Islanders Hockey Club 16U goaltender Dylan Silverstein was named to Team USA's final roster on Tuesday, Dec. 14. Additionally, defenseman Ian Moore played briefly in the National Collegiate Development Conference. 

The World Junior Championships will run from Dec. 26 through Jan. 5 in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. The Championship game will be held Jan. 5. 

Team USA are the defending Gold Medalists from the 2021 Championship. It was the USA's fifth gold medal since first winning in 2004.

Silverstein, a 2004-born native of Calabasas, Calif., played the entire regular season for the Islanders en route to their USPHL 16U Championship. 

Silverstein went 10-2 during the regular season. From the USPHL, he moved on to the Dexter Southfield School, followed by two seasons with the U.S. National Team Development Program's Under-17 and Under-18 teams, and he is currently active with the latter. He has a .911 save percentage in 12 games with the NTDP this year. 

Silverstein is a Boston College recruit for the 2023-24 season. He is also a top goaltending prospect eligible for the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. 

 

Ian Moore is a 2002-born native of Concord, Mass., who played a pair of games for the Boston Junior Bruins' National Collegiate Development Program (NCDC) squad, while also playing that year for the Little Bruins 18U Split-Season team. He has also played in the Boston Junior Bruins organization for their spring and summer teams and their Brick team. 

After graduating from St. Mark's School, Moore played one year in the USHL and then went on to his current team, Harvard University's NCAA Division 1 squad. He had three assists in 11 games for the Crimson. 

 

The USPHL wishes the very best of luck to Dylan Silverstein and Ian Moore, and all of their Team USA teammates, at the 2022 World Junior Championships.
