WJC selection camp by the numnbers

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Because it interests me and I'm trying not to dwell on the fact that  the Habs are rapidly losing players that they drafted...

Random look at the selection camp doodad thing.

36 - the number of players invited to Team Canada's camp
10 - are from the Q (should I be slightly surprised that none of the Voltigeurs are there?)
9 - are prospects of Canadian teams (3 from Edmonton, 2 from Ottawa, 1 each from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal)
7 - played for Team Canada last year (including Eberle. You know him as the kid who saved Canada's gold medal hopes with 6 seconds left in the third period against Russia)
5 - are LA Kings prospects (drafting high for so many years has it's benefits)
4 - play for Windsor (the most from one team)
4 - aren't drafted yet (yes, including Hall and Seguin)
3 - are born in 1992  (including Seguin)
2 - are Rimouski Oceanic players (boo Mooski)
1 - plays for the Juniors (Jake Allen)
1 - is a Habs prospect (Louis Leblanc)

I believe the Habs have two other prospects in Maxim Trunev and Danny Kristo who could also be playing for their countries.

The Count (Danny Kristo) might even be Captain of Team USA!
