Correct me if I'm wrong, but The IIHF recently changed the rules to allow every team to carry three goaltenders. As far as I know this does not eat up a roster spot, so it doesn't hurt Canada any to bring three goaltenders.

Regardless, I think bringing Jake Paterson along as a spectator is a smart idea as there's a great chance he'll be the starting goalie for Canada next year.
