My Team Canada - David Hearn

David Hearn grew up in Brantford, Ont. Recognized for his sharp short game and consistent play, Hearn has had a long and successful career spanning several professional tours, including wins on both the PGA Tour Canada and Web.com Tour in his early career.

Hearn has had three solid seasons since returning to the PGA Tour in 2011. In 2013, he recorded seven Top 25 finishes, including a second-place finish at the 2013 John Deere Classic. He also won the Rivermead Cup at the 2013 RBC Canadian Open, which recognizes the low-Canadian for the tournament.

Hearn attended the University of Wyoming, where he studied psychology. He is a hockey fanatic who loves the Toronto Maple Leafs. For the past two years, David has hosted the David Hearn Golf Classic in support of The Hamilton and Halton Alzheimer Foundation. David is also a huge family man; he and his wife have a daughter, who loves sharing David’s Tim Hortons muffin.

Goaltenders
Corey Crawford
Marc-André Fleury
Roberto Luongo

WHY?: It is a short tournament, so having the hot goalie for those two weeks can make the difference for any team. I think the only real sentimental pick for me was Luongo. He has been given a bit of a bad rap recently, however he is still a great goalie and was the goalie that led us to gold at home in 2010!

Defencemen
Jay Bouwmeester
Dan Boyle
Drew Doughty
Duncan Keith
Kristopher Letang
Alex Pietrangelo
Brent Seabrook
Marc-Édouard Vlasic

WHY?: I feel like it is important to pick the best players, but also players who have played together a lot to help the team come together faster. This is especially true with defensive pairs.

Forwards
Patrice Bergeron
Logan Couture
Sidney Crosby
Ryan Getzlaf
Chris Kunitz
Milan Lucic
James Neal
Corey Perry
Martin St. Louis
Patrick Sharp
Steven Stamkos
John Tavares
Joe Thornton
Jonathan Toews

WHY?:  With forwards it is a challenge, as we are so deep, it is really hard to leave good players off the team who you know can make a difference. I think going with players with a mix of experience and the hot hand is important.
