St. Cloud State hockey coach Bob Motzko will reportedly coach the United States entry in the 2017 International Ice Hockey Federation U20 World Junior Championships. The tournament is scheduled to take place in Toronto and Montreal.

Motzko is expected to bring his entire coaching staff along to the tournament, although details have not been made official.

The United States finished third in the 2016 tournament, their first medal since a first place finish in 2013.
