USA Hockey set its final roster for the 2012 World Junior Championship, which begins next week in Calgary and Edmonton.

As expected, Stars goaltending prospect Jack Campbell is one of two goaltenders on the roster. This will be Campbell's third appearance at the World Juniors. John Gibson, a second round pick of Anaheim in 2011, is the other goaltender and should push Campbell for playing time in the tournament.

Plano's Seth Jones, who was expected to be on the roster, will not play due to an injury suffered in an exhibition game against the Russians earlier this week.

Hockey USA's release on the roster and a link to the complete roster is here.

Stars defense prospects Jamie Oleksiak (Canada), Patrik Nemeth (Sweden) and John Klingberg (Sweden) will also play in the tournament, which runs December 26 through January 5.
