"Sources have told The Citizen that Tyrell has a knee injury and his participation in the tournament is in serious question -- national junior team officials have not confirmed the reports. Team Canada's first WJC game is Boxing Day against the Czech Republic.Far be it to say, "It can't be true, TSN does not have anything up on their website yet." The whole country, of course (this in some TSN's executive fantasy, not in tangible reality) was already debating the merits of only having 12 forwards on the final roster. If Tyrell can't go, that opens the door to bringing someone back (please let it be Taylor Hall, please let it be Taylor Hall).
"A year ago, Tyrell suffered a knee strain that kept him from being at his best for the national junior team's final selection camp, and he was released." -- Jim Swanson
