JONKOPING, SWEDEN - Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jamie Storr will join Canada's Men's World Championship team, General Manager Lanny McDonald announced following Canada's 5-1 loss to the Czech Republic on Sunday night.
Team Canada goaltender Marty Turco was injured during the third period of Canada's game on Sunday, after he left his goal to poke-check a loose puck. He collided with a Czech Republic player, and left the game. Turco is listed as day-to-day, and will be evaluated on Monday.
McDonald added Storr as a precautionary measure due to the uncertainty of Turco's injury and to ensure that Canada has three healthy goaltenders available to them as the team enters Tuesday's quarter-final game. Canada's four goaltenders are: Jean-Sébastien Giguère, Jamie Ram, Jamie Storr and Marty Turco.
Storr has previously represented Canada on four occasions, winning gold medals at all four events he attended (1995 World Juniors; 1994 World Championship; 1994 World Juniors; 1993 Under 18 Pacific Cup).
Canada will play a sudden-elimination quarter-final game on Tuesday, May 7. Canada's opponent in Tuesday's game will be Slovakia at 8 pm local time in Karlstad (2pm ET/11am PT).
All of Canada's games are broadcast live on TSN/RDS, the official broadcaster of the CHA.
