In 2007/08 Jason Pominville teamed up mostly with Jochen Hecht, Tim Connolly or Clarke MacArthur while 5-on-5, and he scored career highs in assists with 53 and points with 80. He was a finalist for the Lady Byng Trophy that summer. Becouse the Buffalo Sabres missed the playoffs he accepted an invite from Team USA to come play with them in the World Championships in Halifax and Quebec City. This was possible becouse Jasons mother of course is american. The team had a so-so tournament overall and went out against Team Finland in the quarters finishing 6th. Pommer had 2+3 in 7 games.
