Detroit Red Wings prospects Jake Paterson and Xavier Ouellet have been selected by Team Canada for the World Junior Championships.

Detroit Red Wings prospects Jake Paterson and Xavier Ouellet have been selected by Team Canada for the World Junior Championships, according to Ansar Kahn of MLive.com. Paterson is a goalie and a third-round pick of the Wings from 2012, while Ouellet is a defenseman who was the No. 48 overall pick in the 2011 draft.

Both players participated in the Team Canada selection camp in Calgary, and they flashed enough talent to beat out other hopefuls in the 36-player pool. Canada will take on Finland on Dec. 26, and it will be interesting to see what type of impact those two Red Wing players make during international competition.

Meanwhile, the NHL lockout even starting to irk President Barack Obama. He urged owners and players to come together and find a way to split revenues and get back on the ice because the sport is built on the backs of the fans.
