What a bummer. Charles Hudon is one the few guys who worked his ass off from the start of camp to make the team. Meh, not a huge fan of Mark McNeil.

Subban wrong choice goaltender for world Jr hockey championships He will have to refocus on the task at hand If the coaching personnel are Intent on playing him In net. He had to have been a distraction to some of his team-mates as per his antics at practice the other day and should be off the bench on 3rd string status recall, thereby letting this club find It's chemistry on the Ice against some very good teams at this years event.
