Canada trimmed its selection camp roster from 32 players to 23 players on December 16.  Since then, Canada’s roster has included eight defencemen. Returning defenceman Brent Seabrook (Tsawwassen, BC) was injured during an intersquad game on December 13, and has been listed as ‘day to day’.

“We felt that Brent Seabrook’s injury has progressed to the point that he is far enough along to be able to again participate and compete within the next few days,” said Sutter. “With that, we wanted to cut our roster down to seven defensemen prior to traveling to Grand Forks tomorrow afternoon.”
