ZURICH-KLOTEN, Switzerland – General manager Doug Armstrong has added defenceman Braydon Coburn (Shaunavon, Sask./Philadelphia, NHL) to Canada’s roster for the remainder of the 2009 IIHF World Championship.

Coburn, 24, is the 24th player on Canada’s active roster, which now includes three goaltenders, nine defencemen and 11 forwards. Forward James Neal continues to be on Canada’s active roster, but cannot compete in the remainder of the tournament due to an eye injury. Canada has one additional roster spot available, as the roster limit is 25.

Canada’s roster includes 14 players with world championship experience (Armstrong, Doan, Fisher, Hamhuis, Heatley, Horcoff, Lombardi, Mason, Phillips, Roloson, Roy, St. Louis, Spezza, Weber). Seven of the world championship rookies (Coburn, Doughty, Harding, Schenn, Stamkos, Upshall, White) have had international experience with Canada’s National Junior Team.

Canada faces either the Czech Republic or Finland in its first game of the qualification round at the 2009 IIHF World Championship, on Thursday, April 30 at 2:15 p.m. ET/8:15 p.m. local time.

TSN/RDS will broadcast all of Canada’s games at the IIHF World Championship live across Canada. Check your local listings for game times in your area.
