Back in August at Team Canada’s orientation camp, I put together the following story on how I thought Team Canada would look when its roster was officially announced. GM Steve Yzerman will announce his team in five days on January 7. Here’s my original piece and an updated prediction list.

 

August Guess

There’s lots of hockey to be played between then and now but here’s my hunch on how the team will look. Obviously this is all subject to change due to injury and production. Canada will carry three goalies, eight defence and 14 forwards.

Carey Price

Mike Smith

 

Defence

Shea Weber

Marc Staal

Drew Doughty
