Burish blogs at the World Championships

Adam Burish is blogging during his experience and praticapation with Team USA at the IIHF World Championships. He has two posts so far, Welcome to Camp and Team Bonding.

As previously mentioned on the blog, Adam is joined by former 2006 Championship Teammate Tom Gilbert on Team USA.

As for Team Canada, Kyle Turris and Dany Heatley are praticipating. KT is a member of the practice squad, while in the Canada's opening round game today Dany became Canada's all-time leading goal scorer w/ a hat trick in the 5-1 victory of Slovenia.

Team USA won 4-0 over Lativa, I'll edit the post once I can get more updated information.
