  • Hockey Canada preliminary roster

    https://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2017...or-roster.html

    Like USA Hockey did yesterday, Hockey Canada has announced their preliminary World Junior Championship roster for the upcoming tournament in Buffalo, NY. The Canadian selection camp will have 32 players in it, but will have to whittle it down before the tournament begins. That group could potentially get a bonus should someone like Nolan Patrick or Victor Mete be sent back from their NHL squads in the next few weeks. The tournament officially begins on December 26th.
    The roster is as follows:
    G Carter Hart (PHI)
    G Michael DiPietro (VAN)
    G Colton Point (DAL)
    G Samuel Harvey (2018 draft eligible)
    D Kale Clague (LAK)
    D Cale Makar (COL)
    D Dante Fabbro (NSH)
    D Jake Bean (CAR)
    D Connor Timmins (COL)
    D Logan Stanley (WPG)
    D Cal Foote (TBL)
    D Josh Mahura (ANA)
    D Dennis Cholowski (DET)
    D Mario Ferraro (SJS)
    F Sam Steel (ANA)
    F Michael McLeod (NJD)
    F Jordan Kyrou (STL)
    F Robert Thomas (STL)
    F Dillon Dube (CGY)
    F Brett Howden (TBL)
    F Boris Katchouk (TBL)
    F Nick Suzuki (VGK)
    F Max Comtois (ANA)
    F Alex Formenton (OTT)
    F Jonathan Ang (FLA)
    F Drake Batherson (OTT)
    F Jonah Gadjovich (VAN)
    F Cody Glass (VGK)
    F Tanner Kaspick (STL)
    F Kole Lind (VAN)
    F Taylor Raddysh (TBL)
    F Tyler Steenbergen (ARI)
    The biggest surprises for Team Canada may be in the exclusions. Owen Tippett (FLA), Cliff Pu (BUF), Michael Rasmussen (DET), Adam Mascherin (FLA) and others were all expected to at least receive an invitation to the selection camp, but they will have to watch as their countrymen battle it out for the final spots.
    Pieces are in place for the future. We still need a top pairing defenseman and a scoring winger. Doesn't look like we are going to get anything from Free Agency or a trade due to our cap limitations. Development years ahead.

    Looks pretty good. Too bad Morgan Frost didn't quite make it. Also surprised Owen Tippett was snubbed.

      Carter Hart should be fun to watch this year.

        Disappointed that Frost didn't get an invite...would have thought his speed would have been amazing for Team Canada.

        Also scary to see that Tampa has 4 guys on this list. That team is already so talented...they will likely stay the course and be a monster in the east for a generation.

          Amid WJCs snub, Flyers prospect Morgan Frost still dominating OHL

          Morgan Frost, C, 18, 5-11/172, Sault Ste. Marie (OHL)
          The Greyhounds won their 20th straight game Saturday afternoon and now haven’t lost a game since Oct. 27, and Frost has been at the forefront of Sault Ste. Marie’s winning stream. Frost is averaging two points per game, collecting 40 points during the Greyhounds’ 20-game winning streak. Last week, Frost had eight points in three games.

          Frost capped off the week with a two-goal, two-assist effort in Sault Ste. Marie’s 7-1 blowout win over Guelph. He also had a two-goal game Wednesday in the Greyhounds’ 4-1 win over the Flint Firebirds. Frost is now second in the OHL in scoring, with 55 points, second in assists with 36 and leads the OHL with a plus-42 rating. He’s averaging 1.67 points, third in the OHL, and winning 50.1 percent of his faceoffs.

          As The Athletic’s Charlie O’Connor pointed out, Frost is scoring comparable to what Travis Konecny was during his after-drafted season. Konecny spent one more season in the OHL after the Flyers drafted him in 2015 and then made the team in 2016-17. While it’s easy to look at Carter Hart in awe, Frost is the one prospect who’s breaking out.

          We knew what Hart was — and what he’s doing in Everett is astonishing. We’ll see Hart plenty next week in the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championships. Frost wasn’t invited to Team Canada’s selection camp this year, but it’s a safe bet he’ll be there next year. We continue to see panic over the Brayden Schenn trade, but that’s misguided. Frost is turning out to be an intriguing prospect, and remember, the Flyers have another first-rounder from St. Louis. Frost is most certainly trending upward. Sound familiar?

            The WJC is mostly a 19 yo tournament .

            Even though Frost is lighting it up... most 18 yo will not play in this tourney unless they are exceptional talents ...

            If he’s in the O next year he will be one of Canada’s WJC leaders next year ...
