I doubt he makes the team, but I could see him make the final camp. People talk about not inviting Mackinnon to the camp, but Nate was in a position where it was his rookie season, and he lacked major international experience. By time December 2012 roles around, he will have experienced the U-17, at least one U-18 (maybe 2) and the Subway Super Series.
But no i dont think he has much of a shot. Firstly, with 3 eligible defenders to return, that leaves maybe only 4 open spots. Siemens, Dumba, Ceci, Percy, Rielly all have good shots to make it
