The U.S. is continuing to get a great effort out of Robbie Russo as well. He’s been incredible on the power play and has been steady defensively. Russo hasn’t really forced anything out there. If he doesn’t have a shot, he’ll pass. If he doesn’t have a lane, he’ll create one with his skating. Russo has had a great tournament and will need to continue his play as he’ll be relied on heavily as Team USA moves through the tournament.

Robbie Russo’s seven points are tied for tops among defensemen in the tournament. Russo has a goal and six assists and has been a big part of Team USA’s offensive output, while also providing sound defense and calm under pressure.

Robbie is one of the top Defencemen available in this years draft. His contributions cant always be seen on a score sheet. At the Draft, in June, you will see a handfull of d-men taken ahead of Russo because of thier offensive production in past couple years. Russo might not have those offensive numbers, but, the team that drafts Robbie will get a player that is a true DEfencemen! He shuts down top lines, makes that first pass, runs the power play and kills too! He has a very calming presence at the blue line that every coach needs.
Cant wait to watch this kid make the State of Ill proud!
