Team Canada general manager Mark Messier continues to fill out his roster for the upcoming IIHF World Hockey Championship as he added three more players on Saturday.

New York Rangers goaltender Chad Johnson, Colorado Avalanche defenceman Kyle Cumiskey and Columbus Blue Jackets blueliner Kris Russell will all be heading to Germany in time for Canada's opening game on May 8th against Italy.

With two goaltenders, eight defenceman and 12 forwards (and one alternate in Oilers' prospect Jordan Eberle), Messier's roster is nearly complete.  One more goaltender may still be added but might well come from a Canadian goaltender who plays in Europe.
