COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League
announced Friday that two players have been released by Canada’s
National Junior Team and will be returning immediately to their
respective club teams.
The players released Friday evening were defenceman Damon Severson
(Melville, Sask./Kelowna, WHL) and forward Hunter Shinkaruk (Calgary,
Alta./Medicine Hat, WHL).
Canada’s roster is now at 23 players, including two goaltenders,
seven defencemen and 14 forwards. One more player will be released to
get Canada down to the maximum of 22 players for the 2014 IIHF World
Junior Championship. Once those 22 players have been registered
officially with the International Ice Hockey Federation, no changes can
be made to that roster.
