Team Canada 2014: Predicting The Forwards

3 of 7


Ryan Getzlaf, ANH

After having a tough 2011-12 season, Getzlaf fell off the “lock” list for a while, but this season has been dominant once again and put himself back into “without a doubt” status. Currently 4th in league scoring.

RW Corey Perry, ANH

All this guy does is win, both individually and as a member of teams.   One of the most decorated players in the world, and like his centreman Getzlaf, has returned to dominance after going through a bit of a slump a couple of seasons ago.

After a brutal start to the season and putting his spot in jeopardy, Giroux has stormed back and put himself back in the conversation.
