TORONTO - Canadas world-junior journey will continue without Chris Bigras, who was among the first round of cuts despite being on last years team. Alex English Jersey .Bigras, fellow defenceman Travis Sanheim and forwards Nick Baptiste, Morgan Klimchuk and Remi Elie were released Sunday evening after a selection camp that included two exhibition games against local university all-stars. Canadas roster stands at 25 players with main camp set to open Monday in St. Catharines, Ont.The message from Benoit Groulx and his coaching staff to those players and the one they seemed to receive through the tough news was that this is a deep, difficult group to crack.We think that the players that we decided to keep are in our plans and I thought also there was a separation between those guys and the players we kept, Groulx said. Thats the reason why we decided to let them go.Bigras was the biggest surprise because he played all seven games in last years tournament and as a returning player figured to have a spot. Instead, the 19-year-old Colorado Avalanche prospect will go back to the Ontario Hockey Leagues Owen Sound Attack.Obviously not the outcome I was looking for, said Bigras, whos from Elmvale, Ont. Cant dwell on it right now.Groulx was an assistant coach last year in Malmo, Sweden, and understood it was devastating to Bigras to get cut this year. But it was his judgement that the eight defencemen Canada kept — Darnell Nurse, Josh Morrissey, Madison Bowey, Joe Hicketts, Shea Theodore, Haydn Fleury, Samuel Morin and Dillon Heatherington — were ahead of Bigras.Its not about (what we didnt see) from him, Groulx said. I think its about the other defencemen we have. We think that the eight guys we decided to keep are just better than him right now.Better than Sanheim, too. The raw Philadelphia Flyers first-round pick goes back to the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League hoping he can do better in this spot a year from now.(Coaches told me) just that Im 18 years old and Ive got a lot to look forward to, the Elkhorn, Man., native said. Next year they hope I come in and make a difference and make this hockey team.Up front, forward depth was responsible for Baptiste, Klimchuk and Elie getting let go. Beyond just the likes of Connor McDavid, Sam Reinhart, Max Domi, Anthony Duclair and Nic Petan, theres the possibility Canada gets Bo Horvat from the Vancouver Canucks and/or Curtis Lazar from the Ottawa Senators.Baptiste, a 2013 pick of the Buffalo Sabres, will go back to playing for the McDavid-less Erie Otters of the OHL. Among those cut, he appeared to take it the best.Its such a good competition here, said Baptiste, a native of Ottawa. Just proud to be one of the top 30 in Canada, move forward, go back to Erie and hopefully go on a (Memorial) Cup run.Coaches told Klimchuk, a Calgary Flames prospect who plays for Regina of the WHL, that he played well in camp and to keep his chin up.Theres a lot of positives to take out of things like this, said Klimchuk, whos from Calgary. Obviously when you leave early, its pretty upsetting, pretty frustrating, but I got a chance to come to this camp and play with the best players in the country.Like Klimchuk, Elie was told the depth up front was responsible for him going back to the Belleville Bulls of the OHL. The Dallas Stars prospect had a noticeable turnover that led to a scoring chance against in one of the exhibition games over the weekend.With these five cuts, Canadas roster has begun to take shape. At least three more must be made before the world-junior-tournament roster is finalized on Christmas Day, though there would have to be more if Horvat or Lazar joins.Right now thats a first step, Groulx said. We want to see how this team is doing together, how they fit together, and when were going to be comfortable at letting go other guys, well do it. Theres no rush for us in our mind.Groulx talked of building this team, a process that continues this week at Meridian Centre in St. Catharines. The team will practise Monday through Thursday there before returning to Toronto for Fridays first international exhibition, against Russia at Air Canada Centre.Were moving to another level: one week of preparation in Niagara, Groulx said. Were going to have to keep working, putting the system in place, working at our lines, duos on defence, speciality team, all that. Weve got to have a good week of work in front of us.Sweden is the opponent Dec. 21 in Ottawa, and then Switzerland at Bell Centre in Montreal on Dec. 23. Its possible McDavid, who has been out since last month with a broken bone in his right hand, plays in one of those games to get acclimated to teammates and the pace of world-junior games.Among the 25 players left on the roster are 15 forwards, eight defencemen and two goalies. Zach Fucale is the favourite to start in goal over Eric Comrie because he played for Canada last year, but as the Bigras cut shows, past performance isnt a guarantee of anything for this team.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Thomas Welsh Jersey . The 26-year-old Regina native teamed up with Denny Morrison and Mathieu Giroux to win gold in 2010. Makowsky also was 13th in the 5,000 metres and 19th in the 1,500m in Vancouver. He also represented Canada at the 2014 Games in Sochi, helping the pursuit team finish fourth and finishing 28th in the 1,500. Tyler Lydon Jersey . Next up, the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Cleveland Browns in the AFC North. Baltimore Ravens In 2014, the 8-8 season that the Baltimore Ravens experienced was to be expected. http://www.cheapnuggetsjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-malik-beasley-jersey . A 19-game winner with the New York Yankees in both 2006 and 2007, Wang spent most of this year at Triple-A for the Yankees and Blue Jays. The 33-year-old right-hander was 1-2 with a 7.ANAHEIM, Calif. - After some tough outings, R.A. Dickeys knuckleball was back to doing the kinds of things that leave hitters walking back to the dugout shaking their heads. Dickey scattered four hits over seven innings for his first victory in over a month, Jose Reyes homered and drove in three runs and the Toronto Blue Jays ended a season-worst five-game skid Tuesday night with a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels. "I just wanted to keep them guessing, as far as the speed goes," Dickey said. "And the movement was very good. When it was leaving my hand, I could see visible that it was moving in multiple directions." Dickey (7-8) struck out five and walked one after losing his previous four starts. The 2012 NL Cy young Award winner got back in the win column for the first time since beating the Tigers on June 4. "It was rewarding because Ive been going over some things in the bullpen," he said. "When you have a good game, you certainly want to rejoice over that and not get too far ahead of yourself." Dickey allowed only two Angels to reach base through the first six innings. He gave up a one-out single to Erick Aybar in the second and a walk to Chris Iannetta two batters later before retiring Collin Cowgill on a flyball to end the threat. "I thought they would be a pretty patient team, not having seen the knuckleball this year at all. And they were. So I wanted to have a knuckleball that I could depend on for strikes," the 39-year-old right-hander said. "I tried to throw as many first-pitch strikes as I could — at least one of the first two pitches. That 74-mile-an-hour knuckleball was kind of my strike knuckleball tonight." Cowgill was the first of 12 consecutive outs for Dickey before Mike Trout doubled to left field with two outs in the sixth and was thrown out at third by Melky Cabrera. The Blue Jays climbed within 2 1-2 games of the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles, who were rained out at Washington. They also snapped a seven-game road losing streak and ended the Angeels 11-game home winning streak, which fell one shy of the franchise record set in 1967. Jarred Vanderbilt Jersey. Tyler Skaggs (4-5) gave up three runs and 11 hits over 6 2-3 innings in his second start off the disabled list, after missing 23 games because of a right hamstring strain. The left-hander, pitching at Angel Stadium for the first time since May 20, is 0-4 with a 4.18 ERA in his last five starts overall. "I thought I threw the ball really well," said Skaggs, who beat the Blue Jays 5-3 on May 10 at Toronto. "When I faced them the last time, they were swinging early — and they kept swinging today. They swung the bats a lot better than Ive seen them in the past, and they put together good at-bats." Nolan Reimold, acquired Sunday off waivers from Baltimore, made his second start in right field as Jose Bautista remained at first base for the injured Edwin Encarnacion. Reimould doubled his first two times up. Reyes opened the scoring in the fifth with an RBI single that snapped Torontos 0-for-25 drought with runners in scoring position. Reyes increased the margin to 3-0, driving Skaggs 100th pitch into the left field bullpen with two outs in the seventh after a single by Munenori Kawasaki. Darin Martroianni added an RBI single in the eighth. NOTES: The Angels are going all out to help get RHP Garrett Richards the final spot on the AL All-Star squad through the internet fan balloting. During batting practice, they all wore black T-shirts with the hashtag: "VoteGRich" and 14 All-Star" in red lettering on the front — with his No. 43 on the backs. The grounds crew stenciled the hashtag on the infield dirt behind second base, behind the batters box, and on the back slope of the mound. ... Only one of Reyes last 53 home runs has come with more than one man on base — a three-run shot against Colorados Jeff Francis on Aug. 17, 2012, at Coors Field with the Miami Marlins. ... The Angels optioned INF Grant Green to Triple-A Salt Lake and recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Double-A Arkansas.
