HANNOVER, GERMANY - Assistant Executive Director Lanny McDonald and the coaching staff announced that forward Brenden Morrow of the Dallas Stars has been added to Team Canada for the 2001 IIHF World Hockey Championship in Germany.

Morrow, 22, has just completed his 2nd season in the NHL with Dallas. The native of Carlyle, SK will be taking part in his first World Championship. Morrow did win a silver medal with Canada’s National Junior Team at the 1999 World Junior Hockey Championship in Winnipeg, MB.

Due to Canada currently having an official ‘registered’ roster of the maximum 23 players, IIHF regulations state that additional players can not be activated until May 9, just prior to the final round of the championship. Therefore, goaltender Dan Cloutier, who was added on May 4th, and Morrow will not be eligible to participate in games until May 9 at the World Championship.

McDonald, Director of Player Personnel, Steve Tambellini and the coaching staff had planned not to add any players to the roster unless there were significant injuries. After forward Michael Peca fractured his cheekbone on Wednesday, and goaltender Roberto Luongo fractured his finger in Friday’s game versus Switzerland, it was decided to add Morrow and Cloutier.

"We are excited to add a player such as Brendan to our roster," said McDonald. "We have built a solid foundation and a team with great chemistry over the past few weeks, and we feel Brendan will add to our team both on and off the ice."

Canada currently has 21 players in Germany, after Peca and Luongo returned home due to their injuries. With the official roster additions of Morrow and Cloutier on May 9th, Canada’s roster will stand at 23 players (3 goaltenders, 19 skaters) entering into the quarter-final round.
