Canucks' Dan Hamhuis Could Join Team Canada at Worlds

Vancouver Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis could be joining Team Canada at the 2013 IIHF World Championships in Sweden and Finland.

Former Canucks head coach (and now an analyst with TSN and head coach of the ZSC Lions of the Swiss League) Marc Crawford tweeted on Wednesday that Team Canada was looking to add a defenceman to the roster.

According to Hamhuis, he has contacted Hockey Canada to alert them that he is available, but hasn’t heard back yet.

The Team Canada defence currently consists of Stephane Robidas, Brenden Dillon, T.J. Brodie, Justin Schultz, Luke Schenn, Jay Harrison, and Brian Campbell.

Hamhuis previously represented Canada at the World Championships in 2007, 2008, and 2009. He also has experience playing the World Junior Championships in 2001 and 2002.
