Barring some last-minute additions, the Presidents' Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks will only have two players participating in the upcoming world hockey championships.

Winger Alex Burrows joined Team Canada on Monday and skated in practice on a line with Corey Perry and Jamie Benn. Fellow winger Jannik Hansen will play for Denmark.

Several other Canucks who received invitations or feelers from their respective countries declined because of injuries or fatigue. That includes Henrik and Daniel Sedin, who turned down invitations to play for Sweden, and Ryan Kesler, who passed on playing for the United States because of a shoulder injury.

"I don't want to risk another concussion," Daniel Sedin said last week.
