Canada's roster for this summer's Super Series against Russia will be highlighted by CHL Player of the Year John Tavares.
Canada's roster also includes four members of the team that won gold at the 2007 World Junior Championship.
The eight game series features four games in Canada - all in the west. Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Red Deer and Vancouver will each host one game.
Tavares will be Canada's youngest player in the event, which will serve as a development and evaluation platform ahead of the 2008 World Junior tournament..
"I am very excited about the group of players that we have assembled for the upcoming Super Series," said Head Scout Jim Hammett. "This evaluation and selection process made it clear to me that Hockey Canada's branches and Hockey Canada's partner, the CHL, continue to do tremendous work in developing hockey talent across Canada."
