Friday morning, Hockey Canada released its final roster for the 2020-21 World Junior Championships. As expected, Kirby Dach made the cut.
Dach will wear number 7 for Canada, which happens to be the number Brent Seabrook wears for the Blackhawks. Dach lived with Seabrook during his rookie season in Chicago.
Two other Hawks prospects were named to the Czech roster.
#Blackhawks prospects Michal Teply (2019 fourth) and Michael Krutil (2020 fourth) were both named to the Czech Republic's traveling roster for #WorldJuniors. The Czechs need to cut two forwards and one defenseman in Edmonton.#WJC #2021WJC— Brandon Cain (@brandonmcain) December 11, 2020
