Dan Hamhuis- He has been a rock on D ever since he has come to Vancouver. At a cap hit of 4.5...
Team Canada announced today that they have added Vancouver Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis to their blue line core for the remainder of the tournament.

Its only fitting that on the game winning goal by Kings forward Jarrett Stoll that there is a Vancouver Canuck defenseman Dan Hamhuis flopping around on the ice as the game winning goal was being scored.
Over the last couple of months, as Daniel and Henrik Sedin have gone into slumps (coupled with the NHL’s return to the dead puck era), there has been a lot of scuttlebutt among Canucks fans about who the team’s MVP is.
