We already knew the names of a few players who would be part of the Canadian team, including Tyler Toffoli and Milan Lucic. So it’s refreshing to see the full list, which, we agree, leaves nothing to be desired.
I can’t wait to see Adam Fantilli in action… And I can’t wait to see how he fares against players older than him.
The young defenseman has had some good times in the NHL this year after starting the season with the Laval Rocket. His confidence has grown in recent months, and on the ice, it’s shown.
Barron is far from the same player he was at the team’s last training camp. Back then, his attitude was a little disappointing, and he seemed a little nonchalant at times.
The move to Laval did him a world of good and is further proof that you have to be patient with youngsters. It doesn’t matter, playing in the American League…
They’ll all be interesting to watch… And it’ll be especially interesting to see the roles they’ll be assigned individually.
– Sam Bennett will not be suspended.
– At least he was on the ice.
Timo Meier jumps on the ice with his teammates on this Game 2 morning. He’s wearing a full visor.
