Dubnyk likely to be cut

The goaltending situation for Team Canada's word junior squad will become clear thursday, and it doesn't seem likely that 18 year old Kamloops Blazer goaltender Devan Dubnyk will survive the coaches axe.

It's probably being kind in saying that Dubnyk hasn't turned in an overly impressive performance in the team's exhibition games. The lanky netminder got the start today for Team Canada as they faced University of Manitoba in an exhibition game that saw the National hopefulls emerge with a 6-3 victory. Dubnyk stopped only six of nine shots as the starter - not a performance that warrants the permanent number one job.

According to TSN analysts, the starting job appears to be Jeff Glass's to lose at this point. The real battle should be between the Prince Albert Raider's Rejean Beauchemin and the Medicine Hat Tigers Kevin Nastiuk for the backup position.
