Phaneuf Turns Down Team Canada

from Sun Media,

Sun Media has learned defenceman Dion Phaneuf has turned down an invite to play at the tournament.

A spot was being held for him, and will likely be filled by Washington’s Mike Green or Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators.

Forwards Jarome Iginla, Alex Tanguay and Matthew Lombardi were all candidates, but all their wives are pregnant. Team Canada has filled 14 forward positions.

Phaneuf apparently wants to heal from the physical first-round playoff series with the San Jose Sharks that ended Tuesday.
