CALGARY, Alta. - Hockey Canada announced Wednesday the rosters for the upcoming Swiss Challenge and 2010 Deutschland Cup. Canada’s National Men’s Team will face Switzerland on Tuesday, November 9 in Kloten, Switzerland in the Swiss Challenge, while the 2010 Deutschland Cup will run from November 12-14 in Munich, Germany.

Canada last participated in the Deutschland Cup in 2008, winning gold. The National Men’s Team has taken part in the tournament on 14 occasions (1992-2006, 2008), winning gold four times (2000, 2002, 2005, 2008).

Jay Wells (Paris, Ont.) has been added as an assistant coach for the Deutschland Cup, joining head coach Mark Messier and assistant coach Rich Chernomaz.

All of the players taking part in the Swiss Challenge and the 2010 Deutschland Cup are Canadians playing professional hockey in European leagues.

“A number of Canadians playing professionally in Europe give their time every year to play for Canada,” said Brad Pascall, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations/national teams. “These players are true ambassadors of the game for Canada, and we are excited to watch them represent their country on the international stage.”
