According to tsn.ca, Lightning prospect and Prince George (WHL) forward Dana Tyrell was among the first cuts made by Team Canada in preparation for this month's World Junior Championships. Tyrell, who has 14 goals and 33 points in 30 games for the struggling Cougars, played for Canada this summer during the Junior Summit Series with Russia.
The last Lightning draftee to play for Team Canada in the WJCs was Brad Richards in 2000. Richards had 1 goal and 1 assist in 7 games for Canada during the tournament. He was used in a limited capacity as a power play specialist.
