Today, Team Canada released their roster of invitees to tryout for the national team.  On the list was Rangers defenseman Marc Staal.  In fact, all three Staal brothers were invited.

From Andrew Gross:

“Based on the competition among the 16 defensemen, I’m not saying Staal is a lock to make the team. But this does speak to Staal’s rapidly rising game and reputation within the hockey world.”

Their parents must be so incredibly proud. So far they’re batting .750!  I wonder what holiday dinner is like at that house.  Jared must sit there glaring at the other three as they go play in the NHL.  Hey, at least he doesn’t have to help his parents make up their own highlights anymore.

Good luck Marc!
