[...] Just as the announcement of the invites was being made, word was spreading about the injury to Moncton Wildcats defenceman Brandon Gormley, who reportedly suffered a serious knee injury during a QMJHL game on Friday. [...] And while Gormley at least received an invite, there were a few notables missing from Monday’s announcement including Kingston Frontenacs forward Ethan Werek, Brandon Wheat Kings veteran Scott Glennie, Oshawa Generals forward Christian Thomas, and the top goal scorers in the OHL and WHL—Ottawa 67’s sniper Tyler Toffoli and Kamloops Blazers forward Brendan Ranford. "There are a lot of disappointed guys across Canada that are disappointed they’re not here and in their minds should be here," said Cameron. "If there’s a downside to (this), it’s that you do break a lot of kids’ hearts, but that’s the nature of the beast." Brandon Wheat Kings forward Brayden Schenn was also left off the list of invitees because he’s still with the Los Angeles Kings. The NHL team has yet to release him for the tournament, though Prendergast said getting the talented forward would be like "getting an early Christmas present, really."
