Team Canada Roster Announced

Published on June 22, 2010 with No Comments

NIHA-Canada announced today it’s official roster for the Men’s National Team attending the IIHF Men’s World Inline hockey Championships from June 27-July 5th in Karlstad, Sweden.

“We’ve got a strong team going into this year’s event with a solid core of returning veterans and some new faces that I think help strengthen some key areas for us,” explains Jan Antons, Team Manager. ” The team selection is always a hard process to go through but I definitely feel that we’ve added some key players to a highly skilled core.”

Scott Hill, VP High Performance backed that statement, “In order for us to contend with the top teams in the world, we knew that our team needed to get better, much like the 09 team was stronger than the 08 team. I think we’ve made a solid stride in putting together the strongest Team Canada that we’ve sent to the IIHF World Championships since our return to the event in 2008.”
