Interesting Fact: St.Louis was not originally named to Team Canada, a decision surrounded by controversy: He led the league in scoring last year and carried his team after Stamkos was hurt. He’s been named to the team as a replacement after his Tampa Bay teammate Steven Stamkos was unable to compete due to injury. St. Louis recently notched his 600th career assist and is on pace to reach 1,000 career points later this year.
