The Edmonton Oilers confirmed Tuesday Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has accepted an invitation from Hockey Canada to play in the World Hockey Championship.

Meanwhile, Steven Stamkos will not attend the tournament in order to rest his ailing left shoulder. An MRI has confirmed there is no structural damage.

Nugent-Hopkins is coming off a potential Calder trophy winning season, while Stamkos became the first player to score 60 goals since Alex Ovechkin did it in 2008.

Great,

Canada moved into position for a bye into Friday’s semifinals. They’ll advance if the United States (2-0) beats Finland (1-1) in the final game Tuesday

Brent Sutter will coach this team.....Kirk Muller will be the assistant

It took less than 24 hours for Brent Sutter to find work again. The former Calgary Flames head coach, who on Thursday agreed to part ways with the NHL team after three seasons, has accepted an invitation to coach Team Canada at the Men's World Hockey Championship.

Full Story.
