Scott Hannan, Kris Draper and Jose Theodore will join Canada's lineup Wednesday night for Canada's World Cup of Hockey game.  Canada's Head Coach Pat Quinn announced the roster adjustments after a team meeting at the Bell Centre on Wednesday morning.

Hannan and Draper, who both sat out Canada's 2-1 win over USA on Tuesday, will see their first action of the tournament.  Theodore will back up starter Martin Brodeur, replacing Roberto Luongo in that role.

Draper will take Brenden Morrow's spot at left wing on a line with Joe Thornton and Shane Doan.  Hannan enters the lineup replacing Ed Jovanovski who left last night's game with a lower body injury.

Canada faced Slovakia in the a World Cup exhibition game on Saturday in Ottawa.  Canada rallied for a 2-2 tie after falling 2-0 early in the game.
