Team Canada has yet to announce who will be the seventh defenceman for their quarter-final game on Wednesday, but it sounds like whomever fills the role will not see the ice much.

Canadian head coach Mike Babcock told Arpon Basu of NHL.com that his top six defenceman are set and whether it's P.K. Subban or Dan Hamhuis in the lineup, neither will get much playing time.

"We've got three really good pairs," Babcock told NHL.com on Monday. "I'll be honest with you, Hamhuis and P.K. haven't got much of a chance. I mean the pairs are good. There hasn't been any changing of players there just because they've been real solid."

Babcock seems content with his pairings of Duncan Keith with Shea Weber, Marc-Edouard Vlasic with Drew Doughty and Jay Bouwmeester with Alex Pietrangelo.

Hamhuis dressed for Canada's 3-1 win over Norway and played just 3:58 minutes in the 2-1 overtime win over Finland.

Subban played 11:41 minutes in Canada's 6-0 rout of Austria.
