Nathan MacKinnon joins Canada for world championship, replaces David Perron

Like Sidney Crosby in 2006, Nathan MacKinnon will get a taste of Team Canada at the world championships at the age of 18.

MacKinnon was one of three players added to Canada's worlds roster Sunday, along with Brayden Schenn and Matt Read of the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Colorado Avalanche rookie and 2013 No. 1 pick, had two goals and eight assists in his first career Stanley Cup playoff series.

Crosby starred at his first world championships, putting up eight goals and eight assists in nine games in Latvia in 2006.

David Perron of the Edmonton Oilers pulled out of the tournament with a hip injury.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
