Kinda (sorta not really) surprised to see Brossiot did not make it, anyway proud of wotherspoon and how much he has improved with the winterhawks

other than the camp invite's

Very proud.

Played a very solid camp, and has had a strong year thus far.

Also love seeing our guy picked over a canuck.

Awesome for Wotherspoon, really pumped he made it. TBH, I wasn't expecting to him make the cut but he has been solid all year.

On another note, correct me if I'm wrong but is this the first Flames prospect to make team Canada since Boyd?

Actually I do remember Aulie and Nemisz now who I believe only recorded a point. I totally forgot about Irving.

With the depth of defenders Canada has, this is quite the feather in the hat for Wotherspoon.

And yeah i was really suprised due to all the depth, although would he have made it if Murray was not injured? and where do you think he sits on the depth charts?

Not hard to do.

Didn't play a single minute. Price played every game that year.

I guess that was the right choice seriously Irving was never going to see the net.

Bottom pairing. Wotherspoon is competent in all aspects, but his size is a huge reason he made the team. I think he will see minutes and hopefully he has a great tourny.

I think he is more of a 7th defenseman that will be used for pk and in case Oullet isn't 100%.

From what I've seen watching Canada so far, Murphy sure as hell is not playing 7th dman minutes.

I think Wotherspoon has been Canada's best two way blue liner this tournament. Just a solid player who keeps it simple.
