Kevin Prendergast and Hockey Canada unveiled their selection camp roster of 39 Monday. They’re hoping for 41.
The Edmonton Journal reports Prendergast hopes to add NHL forwards Tyler Seguin of the Boston Bruins and Los Angeles King Brayden Schenn to the fold for the 2011 World Junior Championship in Buffalo, NY.
“They told us they’d get back to us on Tyler,” Prendergast told the Edmonton Journal.
Seguin, taken second overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft in June, has four goals and eight points in 22 games for the Bruins this season while averaging 12:49 in ice time per game. His role could diminish on the Bruins with the injured Marc Savard set to return to the lineup.
“If we could get him and Los Angeles gives us Brayden Schenn we’ll be set at centre,” Prendergast said.
Schenn, who has played in just eight games for the Kings this season has recently returned to Los Angeles after a two week conditioning stint with the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs. The Saskatoon, SK. native had two goals and eight points in six games at last year’s event, helped Canada to a silver medal in his hometown.
