World Junior rosters continue to be announced and more Arizona Coyotes prospects are being announced. Earlier Aku Räty was announced for Team Finland, and now we know that forward John Farinacci will be playing for Team USA.

Farinacci was drafted by the Coyotes 76th overall in the third round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. After being drafted he went to Harvard University and in his freshman year he had 10 goals and 12 assists in 31 games.

Covid-19 is having a big impact on Farinacci's development. Rather than returning to Harvard Farinacci has been playing with the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the USHL. Farinacci wears an "A" with the Lumberjacks and in six games he has four goals and four assists.

This will be Farinacci's time playing in the World Juniors tournament. He is one of the Coyotes' more intriguing prospects and in our list of 25 Coyotes under 25 he was ranked 19th.
