Lightning’s forward Mikey Eyssimont has been selected to represent Team USA at the IIHF World Championships in Czechia for the second consecutive year. The championships start on Friday and run through May 26. Eyssimont was one of nine players named to the U.S. roster on Sunday morning. In last year’s championships, he contributed with a goal and two assists, helping Team USA reach a fourth-place finish.

Eyssimont, a Littleton, Colorado, native, will report to Bratislava, where the team is currently training. Team USA’s first of eight preliminary-round games is Friday against Sweden in Ostrava. Select games will be broadcast on NHL Network.

Eyssimont, is coming off his best season, becoming a full-time NHL player for the first time this season with the Lightning at the age of 27. He scored 11 goals and 25 points (both career highs) playing mostly on the team’s third line. His 135 hits ranked third on the team, and he played a strong two-way game dictated by his solid forechecking.

He was the Tampa Bay Lightning’s nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy this season, an award given each year to a player who exemplifies perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.
