Boumeester made team Canada as a late born 16 year old, which gave him 3 years of WJC before being drafted.

He is, I believe, the only player to play for Canada 3 times at the WJC prior to being drafted.

Tavares was one of the final players cut when he was 16, which would have given him 3 as a late birthday.
