While the USA dominated and took home the gold in the 2016 FIL U-19 World Championships, the Syracuse Orange had four recruits take part in the games. Fourteen nations took part in the Championship with the final standings leaving USA, Canada, and Iroquois Nation in first, second, and third respectively. The big news for Syracuse, coming out of the tournament was the play of Willie Klan. The Rochester, NY native helped USA to a 13-12 win over Canada in the Championship game with seven second-half saves and eight total.

Austin Staats has not committed to Syracuse...yet. His older brother Randy, played two years at SU after transferring from OCC. It looks like the younger Staats will be playing at OCC this season, and it's a safe bet that Syracuse will be trying to get him in as a transfer at some point, assuming he wants to go orange.

Austin Staats -€” Attack -€” Iroquois

Staats scored the only three Iroquois' goals in a 3-17 loss to team USA and was named to the World Team which is essentially the all-tournament team
