Here are the OHL players (8) heading overseas...

HERE is a link to the final roster.

The following OHL players (a few surprisingly so) were cut:

Brent Moran - G
Jake Middleton - D
Alex Peters - D
Damian Bourne - F
Eric Cornel - F
Jaden Lindo - F
Brendan Perlini - F

Also of note, defenseman Aaron Haydon and goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic will be playing for Team USA at the tournament. And several of the potential Imports (from this year's import draft) will also be suiting up for their respective countries.

The Dale Hunter coached (and D.J. Smith assisted) squad will kickoff the tournament on August 5th against the hosts (or co-hosts) Czech Republic. Team Canada is shooting for a 6th straight gold medal at the event.
