On Monday, many national teams unveiled their preliminary rosters for the upcoming World Junior Championships to be held at the end of the month in Halifax and Moncton. The CH has seen several of its prospects selected by Canada and the United States, to name a few.

As you can see, the Canadian team passed on defenseman Logan Mailloux. While many believe that this is because of the controversy that the selection of the young man may bring, others say that the problem is quite different.
Indeed, Mathias Brunet mentioned on BPM Sports, Monday night, that the non selection of the defenseman is explained by the big flaws in his game. You can listen to his very interesting point of view here below:
Jared Book from HabsEOTP has another theory about the non-selection of the defenseman, and he's leaning more on the Canadian management's way of doing things and not on his game on the ice.
"Logan Mailloux has never represented Canada at the U16 or U18 level.

If you expect his production as an older player to put him on the world junior radar, you simply have no idea how Hockey Canada works.

It literally has nothing to do with what he has done off the ice."

If Mailloux really was sidelined because of his off-ice history, Hockey Canada seems to flat out contradict itself. As Frank Seravalli reminds us, HC selected Senators forward Drake Bratheson for the senior world championships last summer. However, Bratheson was at the center of the controversy with Team Canada 2018, and at the time he did not comment or deny the facts.
"More on Drake:

Seravalli noted that Tricolore player Logan Mailloux may have been overlooked by Team Canada's junior team because of his own controversy.

Drake Batherson was selected for the Worlds this summer at the same time
Team Canada could be grossly contradicting itself."

In short, this is a decision that creates controversy and causes a huge reaction. Would Mailloux have, at the very least, deserved an invitation, in your opinion?
