Former NHLers Bill Guerin and Chris Drury will be tasked with assembling Team USA's roster for the upcoming World Championship, USA hockey announced on Monday.

Guerin currently serves as assistant general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, while Drury holds the same position with the New York Rangers.

The Americans will be looking to get back on the podium this time around, after they were decimated 7-2 in the Bronze medal game against Russia last year. They were successful, however, in capturing bronze in 2015 after besting the Czech Republic 3-0.

The tournament runs May 5-21, but will see Team USA play a pre-tournament game against Italy on May 2.
