Stefan Noesen Ineligible to Play For Team USA in World Juniors


Well, the last hope for Sens fans to see one of the Senators prospects at the World Juniors has just been dashed.

Stefan Noesen was suspended for 10 OHL games for a hit to the head of Oshawa’s Tyler Hore, and when the tournament opens on Boxing Day, will still have 7 games remaining in the suspension.

The IIHF honors suspensions from other leagues for international play and as a result, Noesen has been deemed ineligible to play for Team USA, despite the appeal of USA Hockey.

Noesen was the sole remaining candidate to represent the Senators in Ufa, Russia, after Mika Zibanejad was not released from Binghamton by the Senators, while Cody Ceci and Matt Puempel were left off the Canadian selection camp.
