Final World Cup of Hockey Rosters Announced

The final roster spots were announced on Friday for the World Cup of Hockey in September.



The final selections for the eight teams at the World Cup of Hockey were announced on Friday. The World Cup of Hockey will take place in September prior to the start of the 2016-17 NHL season. The tournament will be played in Toronto. The majority of players had already been selected to their teams back in March and today the teams rounded out their respective rosters.

Calgary Flames Players Named to Team Rosters:

The Flames will send 5 players to the tournament in the fall with Gaudreau and Monahan poised to be key players on the North American U23 team. However it could've been even more players but there were a few Flames omissions from rosters today.

The tournament will run September 17 to October 1st and will be the first World Cup of Hockey since Canada won the tournament over Finland back in 2004.
