WELCOME TO TEAM CANADA
Ten facts about Canada's team at the 2014 World Championships:
The eleven forwards selected scored a combined 207 goals in 812 games this season.
The eleven forwards have a combined 454 points in 812 games this season.
The seven defensemen scored a combined 37 goals in 512 games this season.
They combined for a +/- of -50 this season (remember, these players are from teams that didn’t make the playoffs, so the +/- is likely to be poor from those already named to the team).
The team has 11 first round draft picks, 1 fourth rounder, 2 fifth rounders, 1 sixth rounder, 1 seventh rounder and 4 undrafted players.
Ten players have represented Canada at the World Junior Championships.
One player was invited to Team Canada’s Olympic team orientation camp (Marc Methot).
Four provinces are represented (Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta), with Ontario unsurprisingly leading the pack with nine players.
Washington, Vancouver and Toronto have the most players headed over with three apiece.
The highest draft picks on the team are Erik Gudbranson, Kyle Turris and Jonathan Huberdeau, who were all chosen 3rd overall.
