There were rumblings yesterday about two Maple Leafs and Team Canada's roster for the World Championship, but now it's official.

A report from Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun has confirmed  that Team Canada has officially added Toronto Maple Leads forward Mitch Marner to their roster for the upcoming World Championship.

Officially joining Marner on the roster will be fellow National Hockey League players Brayden Schenn of the Philadelphia Flyers, Marc-Edouard Vlasic of the San Jose Sharks and Chad Johnson of the Calgary Flames.

It was also rumored yesterday that Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly may have been invited but declined, and his absence from this announcement would appear to confirm those rumors, unless of course he was not invited to begin with.
