A hard working, solid all around player seems like just the guy they may be looking for with a 4th line wing or 13th forward.
they have a track record with hockey canada, If Catenacci plays for Canada its not because they want him for a scoring role because they have other guys to do that. Its because they want him to bring a physical game. This type of game favours guys like Hudon and Danult who are terrific at doing this. Its unlikely that Catenacci makes the team but he still has a slight chance if he gets an invite.


Those would be the locks at foward off the top of my head, then you have guys like Drouin, Monahan, Wilson and a few others. Personally I think Monahan is pretty close to a lock but some may disagree. Every year there seems to be a suprise at camp though so who knows.

Will MacKinnon, Drouin, and Monahan be wearing cages if they make the team?
