Team Presentations

USA

Team USA is a team with a couple of new faces as well as some returning ones and who hope to play with a lot of energy and speed.  They also hope to continue to spread floorball in North America through a good showing that takes them to the WFC in Prague in December. 

Players to watch

Alexander Granvald: Team captain who plays in Sweden and has some incredible floorball skills is always one to watch!
Axel Palmstrom: He is making his debut on the US national team and will be an exciting new face on the team. He plays with speed and skill and should be fun to watch.
Mikko Vähä-Vahe: Mikko is a young player who has been around a while despite his young age and gets it done. Watch out for his physical play!

Canada

This year, Canada must fight for a spot at the World Championships despite hosting WFCQ 2018. Their goal is to defeat Team USA and eventually to climb the world rankings. Doing so will no doubt help their country in its continued effort to grow the sport of floorball. 

Players to watch

Valtteri Viitakoski: Viitakoski is travelling to Canada from his team in Finland. He was one of Canada´s top players at WFC Riga.
Cedric Grenapin: For the youngest player on the team, Grenapin should put some impressive skill on display.
Tyler Brush: One of Canada´s skilled veterans, Brush will have had a huge impact at WFCQ 2018 both on and off the court.
