The 2013 World Junior Championship hasn't gone well for Rocco Grimaldi thus far.

The Florida draft pick dressed as Team USA's 13th forward on Monday against Slovakia after starting on the top line because of "selfish" play. He has no goals and one assist in four games during the tournament. If the message has been sent then Grimaldi should return to the fold for the quarterfinals versus the Czech Republic.

The Florida Panthers selected Rocco Grimaldi with the 33rd overall pick.

Rocco Grimaldi has been featured in many magazines as a huge talent, but his size will drop him to the late first round or a second round selection. The five foot, six-inch, 163 pounder has a ton of offensive talent and is strong with the puck so he needs a team to believe in him and select him despite his diminutive size. He will play for North Dakota so that will give his draft team plenty of time to watch his development.
