Wright, James

N.A. Juniors Game Night: 12/20

Team Canada Notes:
Canada called in Evander Kane, a BP favorite and teammate of Lightning prospect James Wright in Vancouver, to presumably take the spot of the injured Dana Tyrell. Tyrell suffered a "significant" knee injury Friday night in an exhibition game vs. Sweden and his tournament officially over.

Also, Canada coach Pat Quinn said the goaltenders' peformance Friday night did not sway him one way or another on a starter. Dustin Tokarski (0 GAA Friday) and Chet Pickard (2 GAA Friday) will go into today's game neck and neck.

Around the WHL: Spokane, playing without Dustin Tokarski while he is preparing for the WJCs with Team Canada, dropped a 3-2 decision to Medicine Hat.

Team Canada notes: Understandably, Tokarski didn't get much sleep Sunday night awaiting Canada's final decision on who would make the team (Ottawa Citizen):
