2012 WJHC in Calgary/Edmonton and Team Canadan Discussion

Recommended Posts

News came today that 2 of the possible 3 eligible players in the NHL were released to play by their clubs.

Brett Connolly and Devante Smith-Pelly will join the rest of the Team Canada in the next couple days.

Camp Roster found here: http://www.hockeycanada.ca/index.php/ci_id/75137/la_id/1/season_id/177039/profile_id/178507/team_id/82853/ss_id/56000/

Camp starts on Sunday with 2 intra-squad games taking place Sunday and Monday. After cuts are made the final roster will play an exhibition game against the CIS all-star team.

Pre-competition schedule can be found here: http://www.hockeycanada.ca/index.php/ci_id/177131/la_id/1.htm

TC will play Finland, Switzerland and Sweden before the tournament officially starts.

The tournament opens on boxing day between Canada and Finland.

WJC schedule can be found here: http://www.hockeycanada.ca/index.php/ci_id/170918/la_id/1.htm

Here is my predicted roster:

Schwartz - Schiefele - Connolly

Huberdeau - Phillips - Stone

Howden - Strome - Smith-Pelly

Gallagher - McNiell - Bulmer


Hamilton - Gormley

Beaulieu - Pysyk

Morrow - Oleksiak

Gauthier-Leduc, Kitchton, Dumba, Reinhart, Ferlund, McNeill, Phillips all cut from Team Canada. Roster at 35.


Thought Dumba and McNeill would at least get through the first round of cuts. If they don't make it to the NHL next year, they WILL be back.

Phillips has not played well at camp. Not sure if that has anything to do with Huberdeau out. Many have said Phillips thrives off Huberdeau, but at the start of the season when Huberdeau was with Florida, Phillips managed to play well.

One more game tonight and then last cuts tomorrow morning!
