Canada cuts two from WJC roster

Canada cut two players from its roster for the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship on Friday.

Sent home were forward Hunter Shinkaruk, a Vancouver Canucks prospect, and defenseman Damon Severson, a New Jersey Devils draft pick. Neither player skated in Canada's 4-2 victory against Finland on Friday in a pre-tournament game in Angelholm, Sweden.

The moves leave Canada's roster at 23 players; one more player must be cut prior to the start of the tournament, which runs Dec. 26 to Jan. 5, 2014 in Malmo, Sweden.

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
