Tournament Time: Spengler Cup 2014

The European Holiday Tournament is on once again, as Davos, Switzerland hosts the annual gathering of European professional Club Teams taking on Team Canada.

Hockey Canada announced the listings of those Canadians who currently fill out the European Club rosters, along with a few imports for the cause to carry the Canadian Flag at the 88th edition of the Spengler Cup.

Like the World Juniors, the Spengler is a short sprint to the finish line, a few games leading up to the Championship, where a loss or two could mean the end of the chance to hoist the trophy and grab the holiday bragging rights.

Taking part in this years journey include the host squad HC Davos, from the KHL teams representing Medvescak Zagreb, HC Salavat Yulaev UFA, Jokerit Helsinki, Geneve-Servette HC and Team Canada.

The full schedule can be found below as each day's events prepare for puck drop.
