No player will be watched more closely at the World Junior Championship in Saskatoon and Regina (Dec. 26 - Jan. 5) than Hall, who is expected to be the first overall choice in next summer's NHL draft. The lightning-quick left winger will spearhead the offense with Windsor Spitfires linemates Adam Henrique (Devils, 2008) and Greg Nemisz (Flames, 2008), while returnee Ryan Ellis (Predators, 2009) quarterbacks the power play. It willl be the first time since 1988 that four members of the same junior club were named to Team Canada.
