CALGARY, Alta. – Mark Messier, Team Canada general manager for the 2010 IIHF World Championship, has announced a group of seven additional players that will represent Canada at the world championship, which runs May 7-23 in Cologne and Mannheim, Germany.  

Messier and the management staff, comprised of Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s director of men’s national teams, Doug Risebrough, Michel Goulet and Doug Messier, have been scouting NHL teams and monitoring the playoff situation. A first group of 15 players and one alternate player was named on April 16.

The players named on Saturday are:

Canada can register up to 25 players on its final roster at the world championship, but only 22 players, including two goaltenders, can be dressed for each game.

Canada’s coaching staff is comprised of head coach Craig MacTavish (London, Ont.), associate coach Peter DeBoer (Dunnville, Ont./Florida Panthers, NHL) and assistant coach Billy Moores (Edmonton, Alta./Edmonton Oilers, NHL)
