Full Team Canada Selection Camp Roster:

This will be the second selection camp for Lapierre. He was cut from last year’s camp and did not make the final roster. This will be Iorio’s first selection camp.

Team Canada took home the silver medal in last year’s tournament, losing to Team USA 2-0 in the championship game. It was the fifth gold medal for the United States in the tournament and the fifth time in the last six years that Team USA has medaled in the event, the best medal stretch in the nation’s history.
