WD Sports and Entertainment Client Austin Watson has been selected to represent Team USA at the upcoming IIHF World Championships in Tampere and Helsinki Finland. The Michigan native had a fantastic finish to his 2021-2022 NHL season with the Ottawa Senators netting seven goals in the month of April and finishing with 10 goals on the year.

Watson was relied on heavily for veteran leadership on a young Senators team.

This will be the third time Watson has represented his country in total, and the first time in close to a decade since the 2012 U20 IIHF World Juniors where Watson led the USA in points with 3 goals and 6 assists in 6 games played.
