CALGARY - The hard part is over for Kevin Prendergast. But in a sense, nothing gets easier.

The Hockey Canada head scout had the architect's role in assembling the selection camp roster for Canada's junior team, but now that the 23-player group is one practice away from leaving for Europe, Prendergast is doing everything but relaxing.

"Once you pick the team, the load is off, but that does not mean anything now," Prendergast said. "It starts all over again. Now we have to mould these guys into a team."
