Team Canada has added some serious firepower.
Just over two weeks before the 2019 IIHF World Championship commences in Slovakia, forwards John Tavares and Mark Stone have committed to Team Canada, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
Both players and their teams were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs this past Tuesday. Tavares and the Maple Leafs lost to the Bruins in Game 7, the second straight season Toronto fell to Boston in a seven-game first-round series. As for Stone, the former Ottawa Senators winger - despite notching 12 points (six goals, six assists) for the Golden Knights - could not avoid a Game 7 loss to the San Jose Sharks.
