Fellow defenceman Cam McGiffin also joined the Phantoms this season, and makes the step up to the Under 20’sNational Team, having played a number of games for the Under 18’s in previous World Championships.
Russell said: “Selecting a team is never easy but that’s the fun part. We can and will get the very best out of this group.
“They all want to be here and are proud to have the opportunity to play for GB.
“I like the feeling in the group and there work ethic.
“We have strong goaltending who will help our d-core and at time bail us our when required.
“Our offence has good speed, skill and decent size.”
