Alumni defense report: Housley in for Team USA, McKee out with Amerks

Sources told The News earlier this evening that Jay McKee's spot on the Rochester Amerks coaching staff might be tenuous and coach Ron Rolston confirmed late Monday night to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle that McKee is, in fact, out after one season. 

Rolston would only say that it was a matter of "fit" between he and McKee. Rolston and fellow assistant coach Chadd Cassidy had been together the previous six years with USA Hockey's National Development Team.

In other USA Hockey News, Sabres Hall of Famer Phil Housley has been named head coach of the US National Team for the World Junior Championships this winter in Ufa, Russia. Housley has spent the last eight years as head coach at Stillwater (Minn.) High School.
