“Hockey Canada would like to thank all the players for accepting this opportunity to represent their country at the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship,” said Brad Pascall, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and national teams. “We are glad to see the enthusiasm these players showed when asked to play at the world championship.
