Roslovic won a gold medal with team USA at the U18 World Championships, scoring 6 goals and 5 assists in 7 tournament games.

Similar to fellow Jets draftee Kyle Connor, Roslovic is committed to the NCAA, looking to play with the University of Miami, Ohio in the fall.

There's the potential some of his success came due to his linemates though, as mentioned by McKeen's

Thrived on the top line ably complementing 2016 eligible phenom’s Matthew Tkachuk and Auston Matthews. Excelled internationally competing with the elite in his peer group. A slippery, instinctive playmaker who sees openings and makes sharp passes through a maze of players. Extremely skilled at creating puck movement with his stickhandling - and then deftly dishing off a play on his backhand. A clever winger who plays an effective supportive offensive role getting into good shooting lanes but often looking to pass first - understanding that he will get it back. Superb pivoting and transitions while moving that support his body positioning to receive passes. A gifted skater with great outside speed, whose appearance is slightly awkward with unique skating mechanics and foundation
