Tournament Time: Spengler Cup 2014

There won't be any large contingent of idle NHLers to round out this years Spengler Cup rosters, making it a fairly mercenary group that will take to the ice for the Maple Leaf this time around.

Hockey Canada listed the names of those competing for Team Canada with a collection of Canadians playing in Europe and a few from the AHL ready to fly Canada's flag at this years event when the puck drops in Davos.

Like the World Juniors, the Spengler opens up on Boxing Day with to games of note for the 6 competing teams, featuring a wide range of club hockey squads in addition to the assembled Canadians.

Among the others taking part in this years Spengler, the Rochester Americans, CKSA Moscow, HC Geneve-Servette, HC Davos and HC Vitkovice Steel.

The full Spengler Schedule can be found below as each day's events get ready for puck drop.
