Team Canada has made a major decision involving Joshua Roy

It was an extremely disappointing first game of the tournament for Team Canada, as they surprisingly lost to the Czech Republic by a score of 5-2.

Canada played a horrible game, not being able to find a way back into the game, due to the lack of discipline from the team. Sometimes a little adversity early in the tournament helps keep players on their toes. With a talented team like Canada, it's an important statement that will force them to not take any opponent lightly.

In short, let's turn the page!

However, all indications are that there may be some changes to the lineup and Joshua Roy may be one of them.


Roy is expected to be moved alongside Connor Bedard and Logan Stankoven, two of Canada's top guns.

Remember that Roy was used on the third line against the Czechs. Being one of the veterans of the Canadian team, it makes sense to add an experienced and very skilled guy like him to a trio with Bedard.

Nice promotion for the Quebecer!

UPDATE:

This information had been disclosed by Stéphane Leroux, but he deleted the Tweet in question...

So it's still to be confirmed!

Remember that Canada has also made a goaltender change for the next game, as Thomas Milic will be between the posts against the Germans.


A feeling of déjà vu by Canada?
