Hannan and Draper, who both sat out Canada's 2-1 win over USA on Tuesday, will see their first action of the tournament.  Theodore will back up starter Martin Brodeur, replacing Roberto Luongo in that role.

Draper will take Brenden Morrow's spot at left wing on a line with Joe Thornton and Shane Doan.  Hannan enters the lineup replacing Ed Jovanovski who left last night's game with a lower body injury.
