Frk, Ouellet, Sproul and Nedomlel should all be there. Bob MacKenzie sees Patterson as getting an invite to the camp and as one of a few goalies penciled to challenge for back up to Subban. Tvrdon would have been on the Czech team if not for the injury (2 years in a row that his season was cut short due to injury, he had a slow start (probably rust) and then was tearing it up before developing some sort of infection). Jurco is only 3 days too old to participate in the tournament.
Ryan Sproul isn't even mentioned and he just may be the best jr aged defenseman in the world. It is mentioned that Murray's offense will be missed esp on the PP but Sproul is even more capable of producing offense (Murray had 2 goals and 17 points in 23 games before getting injured. Sproul only has 2 less points, 2 more goals in less than half the games). He is scoring at a better clip than Hamilton but also has some size, plays physically and is right handed shot.
He got off to a hot start leading the OHL defensemen in scoring with 9 points in his first 6 games but broke his forearm in the 7th, he has returned from injury earlier than expected and hasn't skipped a beat continuing from where he left off scoring 3 goals and 3 assists in his first 4 games back. The Greyhounds are 4-9-1-0 without him and 7-2-1-0 with him. he is dominating the OHL like no other defenseman in a long time.
