What I take from that is that he was probably a guy trusted on a 5 on 3 situation where the forward got waived out. So while his offense is nice to see, I'm glad to see that his defensive game is respected for one of the tougher assignments.

Probably. Just not very often you see Dmen taking draws, but that’s one of the situations where it happens.

This link didn't work for me, but you usually think of showcases being for undrafted players who are showcasing their talents to scouts and coaches.  Considering that Truscott is already drafted, and I assume at least some of the other players are too, does anyone know the purpose of this showcase?

It's done to showcase players for potential selection to the upcoming  US WJC team. It has nothing to do with the draft.

He started the tourney as the third pairing guy, but today looks like the first pairing for team USA.

 

Not a sexy prospect/pick but considering how a lot of our defensive prospects are offensively oriented, its nice to know that he has a very steady defensive game. He is a guy to keep an eye on.
