Prospect Colton Sissons was officially cut from Team Canada's 2013 World Juniors team Thursday. The Kelowna Rockets captain suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury, believed to be a concussion, during Hockey Canada's selection camp earlier this December.  Colton Sissons has played 27 games in the Western Hockey League with 10 goals, 17 assists. Even with a lot of depth at the forward position for Canada, Sissons' chances to make the team were better than most. His head coach Ryan Huska believed he would be a third or fourth line guy. "Unfortunately, he's got an injury at the wrong time for the selection camp and for the world-junior tournament," said Huska. With that being said, here is the roster of the 2012-13 Canada roster, the favorites to win the championship. GOALTENDERS Jordan Binnington Jake Paterson Malcolm Subban DEFENSE Dougie Hamilton Scott Harrington Ryan Murphy Xavier Ouellet Griffin Reinhart Morgan Rielly  Tyler Wotherspoon FORWARDS Anthony Camara Phillip Danault Jonathan Drouin Jonathan Huberdeau Charles Hudon Boone Jenner J.C. Lipon  Nathan MacKinnon  Ryan Nugent-Hopkins  Ty Rattie  Brett Ritchie Mark Scheifele Ryan Strome   Now, for the remainder of the Predators prospects trying out for their country's WJC team: On what is believed to be December 22, Mikko Vainonen and Miika Salomaki attempt to make final cuts for Team Finland. USA Hockey plans to announce their final 23-man roster on December 23, hopefully with Jimmy Vesey on the list. Lastly, Max Gortz looks to make the Swedish National Team in time for the World Juniors as they make cuts on Christmas day.
