Video: 2013 World Junior Championship - Mark McNeill, Canada

Bad news for Montreal Canadiens prospect Charles Hudon was good news for Chicago Blackhawks prospect Mark McNeill.

Hudon, who plays for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens of the QMJHL, was unable to participate at the 2013 World Junior Championship after injuring his back. Enter McNeill of the WHL's Prince Albert Raiders, who replaced Hudon on Team Canada's roster shortly before the start of the tournament.

McNeill is having another solid season with the Raiders, the top team in the WHL's East Division.
