    World Cup: Bouwmeester in for Pronger

    TSN.ca Staff

    8/15/2004

    Chris Pronger has withdrawn from the World Cup of Hockey, TSN has learned.

    Sources told TSN that the big defenceman tweaked his previously injured right knee while training. Although the injury is not considered major, it is enough to force him to withdraw from the World Cup of Hockey, which starts August 31st for Team Canada.

    Pronger apparently informed Hockey Canada of his decision to withdraw Sunday.

    Team Canada named Florida Panthers defenceman Jay Bouwmeester to replace Pronger.

    Not a bad choice...him or McCabe would've made sense.

    As good as mccabe is, this was the right decision. Jbo's skating and ice vision are 100 times better then mccabe's. Defense wise the two are uncomparable mccabe is a liability.

    I would have preferred Aucoin, but J Bo played well at the World Championships a few months ago. Plus, this will be a good experience for him, as he is likely going to be one of Canada's top defensemen in the future.
