CALGARY - Coming up with 23 world-class players isn’t a problem.
The issue facing Team Canada world junior coach Steve Spott is choosing only 23 players for the 2013 world junior hockey championships, beginning Dec. 26 in Ufa, Russia.
Spott and the rest of the Canadian coaching brass will have a tough time cutting 14 players from the list of 37 selection camp hopefuls released Monday.
“People think that might be easy,” Spott said with a chuckle. “It’s really not. It’s a challenge."
