According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, both Erik Gudbranson and Devante Smith-Pelly will find out tomorrow whether or not they’ll have the opportunity to represent Canada at the World Junior Championship.

Anaheim’s Bob Murray  wields the final decision on Smith-Pelly, while Dave Tallon of the Florida Panthers will decide Gudbranson’s fate.

Gudbranson represented Canada at the 2011 World Junior Championship in Buffalo, helping his country to a silver medal. Gudbranson has one assist in 21 games for the Panthers, averaging 11:43 of ice time this season.

Smith-Pelly, on the other hand, was the biggest surprise at Canada’s summer camp in Edmonton. He has two goals and four points in 25 games this season.
