I believe defenceman Calvin de Haan is going to be in the lineup for Canada when they face Sweden on Friday. In a real pinch, I think he could have played against Norway on Wednesday because he doesn't have structural damage to his leg, so it sounds like if he can bear the pain, he can play.
Forward Jaden Schwartz, who appeared to suffer a lower-body injury in the first period of Monday's game, sat out of the Monday's game against Norway and that bodes will for him.
The one that came out of left field was forward Cody Eakin missing Wednesday's contest. Everyone assumed coming into the game that he would play, but when the game started he wasn't out there on the opening line. Of all the lines, the one they were planning to keep together was Eakin, Carter Ashton and Casey Cizikas but they weren't able to because Eakin tweaked an injury in the warm up and wasn't able to play.
These players we're talking about, in most cases, are guys that have a huge impact on the power play. I don't want to read too much into it but in the game against Norway, Canada went 0-3 on the power play without these players.
The problem is they might not have some of these guys against Sweden either.
They know for sure they won't have Zack Kassian on the power play. Sean Couturier moved up into his spot and they're looking for him to try to generate a little offence. If they can get Schwartz back, it helps with the man advantage and if they can get Eakin back, he potentially takes the spot of Schwartz if he can't go. It's a ripple effect.
