Without further adieu, here's the selection camp roster:
|Josh Anderson||Jonathan Drouin||Frederik Gauthier||Felix Girard||Charles Hudon|
|Bo Horvat||Scott Laughton||Curtis Lazar||Taylor Leier||Anthony Mantha|
|Connor McDavid||Nicolas Petan||Sam Reinhart||Kerby Rychel||Hunter Shinkaruk|
|Chris Bigras||Matthew Dumba||Aaron Ekblad||Joshua Morrissey||Adam Pelech|
|Derrick Pouliot||Griffin Reinhart||Damon Severson||Zachary Fucale||Jake Paterson|
It's fairly shocking to see highly touted 18 year old prospects Darnell Nurse and Max Domi left off, but it's important to remember that Hockey Canada often treats this as a 19 year old's tournament, and will take slightly less talented 19 year olds instead of the most talented 18 year olds if they feel that they're more developed physically.
Is this a winning strategy? Well... It hasn't been for quite awhile now.
It's no surprise that Zach Fucale and Charles Hudon have made the team, and they should be vying for big roles. Hudon has electric chemistry with Jonathan Drouin, and Fucale could end up as the starting goaltender. Both are already locks for the team.
