Notebook: Team Europe defense all left-handed
QUEBEC CITY -- The Team Europe defensemen have been shuffled and reshuffled, moved and changed. The pairs have, as they say, been fluid, prior to the start of pretournament games for the World Cup of Hockey 2016.It's something that has been easy and difficult for the coaching staff to deal with, given that all seven defensemen are left-handed.
