Jimmy Howard G DET Feb 03 '78
Jimmy Howard will play for Team USA in the upcoming IIHF World Championships.
"Yeah, I'm excited; it's for my country," Howard said. "It's been a while since I've been able to do that, so I'm looking forward to it." This is the first time since 2006, before Howard had earned a permanent roster spot with the Red Wings, that Detroit has been eliminated in the first round.
