Canadians to watch Add to ...

Forward Jordan Eberle, He has been Canada's best player, and the Regina native is the local favourite. He scored the two biggest goals of Canada's 2009 world junior tournament, and he has a knack for the dramatic.

Forward/defenceman Brandon McMillan He is Mr. Versatility, and the Canadians wouldn't be playing for gold without him. Given the shoulder injury to shutdown defenceman Travis Hamonic, McMillan may play on the blueline, as he did earlier in the tournament.

Goaltender Jake Allen He has two shutouts in the tournament, and some spectacular numbers. But he was schooled for four goals by the United States in a preliminary-round game, and he'll be under fire against a speedy team that is averaging 40 shots a game.
