After three days of watching and talking, there’s nothing left to see or say. Without further ado, I present you my Team Canada entry for the 2012 World Junior Championship.
The competition for jobs on Canada’s entry for the World Junior Championship is as good as I can remember, which means there are not a lot of locks for the 2012 edition of Team Canada. Following the first night, Brendan Gallagher of the Vancouver Giants can book his room in both Edmonton and Calgary.
The Winnipeg Jets have selected Mark Scheifele of the Barrie Colts with the seventh overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Much like Mark McNeill, Scheifele is a centre that can contribute in all three zones on the ice. Where Shceifele excels is with his long, powerful skating stride which compliments his six-foot-two, 185-pound frame.
