Sam Gagner to Dress for Canada

The Globe & Mail is reporting that Team Canada forward Eric Staal will miss the quarter-final game against Norway to attend the funeral of his grandfather. Unfortunate news for the Staal family, and you can't blame a guy for leaving to go to something like this.

The fallout from this is that the team's #14 forward, Sam Gagner, will get to play in a game. Having watched all the games to date from the pressbox, this will be our first chance to see him in action at the tournament. He's come a long way from being cut from the U-18 team a little while back.

As a bonus, he'll likely get to play with Jason Spezza on the 4th line.
