CALGARY, AB - Canada's roster for the 2002 IIHF World Hockey Championship was bolstered Tuesday as Team Canada General Manager, Lanny McDonald, along with Assistant GM Doug Armstrong and Head Coach Wayne Fleming added 11 players. The 2002 Championship will run April 27-May 11 in Sweden.

On Monday, Team Canada's management staff was informed that previously announced Nashville Predators forwards Greg Johnson and Scott Hartnell will not be joining the team for the championship, both due to injury since being named to Team Canada.

Canada's roster now stands at 18 players (two goaltenders, five defensemen and eleven forwards).

The 11 players added, (two defensemen and nine forwards), announced by the CHA are:

10 of the 11 players added on Tuesday have previous international experience. Brewer will be on his second tour of duty at the World Championship for Canada after playing in 2001. He also represented Canada at the 2002 Olympics, winning a gold medal and played for Canada at two World Junior Hockey Championships (19) winning a gold medal in 1997.

Smyth has played in three World Championships (1999, 20) and was a member of Canada's 2002 gold medal winning Olympic team. He also represented Canada at the 1995 World Juniors, winning a gold medal.

Jamie Wright won a gold medal with Canada's National Junior Team in 1996. Cleary played with Canada's Under 18 team previously, and this will be Comrie's first international experience.
