Team Canada WJC Selection Camp Roster: No Glennie, Reilly Smith Invited

Last December Stars prospect Scott Glennie saw his goal of making Team Canada's World Junior team slip away in mid-December at the selection camp after suffering a concussion in a Red/White scrimmage. He was considered a bit of a long shot but had a chance. This year he will not be so lucky as he has not been invited.

Glennie's performance has been up and down this year (or as up and down as one can be with 31 points in 28 games) and the absence of long time Wheat-King teammate Brayden Schenn (now of the Los Angeles Kings) has been part of the problem, according to some.

From TSN:

2010 top draft picks Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin are both junior eligible but were not invited to the camp and are unlikely to be released by their NHL teams. TSN's Bob McKenzie said that Team Canada hopes Brayden Schenn, currently on the Los Angeles Kings roster, will be made available for the tournament.

Also among those who weren't invited are Scott Glennie, a first-round pick of Dallas (eighth overall, 2009), Brenden Ranford, a Flyer draft pick who is second in scoring in the WHL, and Christian Thomas, who is 16th in league scoring in the OHL.

On the positive side, Stars prospect Reilly Smith was extended an invitation. Smith plays for Miami University (in Ohio) and has tallied 19 points in 15 game so far this season. The right wing was the Stars 3rd round choice in 2009, going 69th over all. He'll have to compete against 22 other Canadian hopefuls for a spot on the team.

The roster is here.

Team USA is expected to release it's roster next week. Stars goaltender prospect Jack Campbell, of course, is expected to be on it.
