MALMO - Head coach Brent Sutter has made it official: Jake Paterson will start for Canada when it opens the World Junior Hockey Championship on Thursday against Germany. Custom San Diego Padres Jerseys . Goalie consultant Fred Brathwaite delivered the news to the Saginaw Spirit goalie on the ice at the start of Wednesdays practice at the Malmo Isstadion. "Obviously Im really excited to get the call," Paterson said after the up-tempo workout. "Im ready to get focused and looking forward to the game." The 19-year-old served as Canadas third-string goalie at last years event in Ufa, Russia, but did not get in a game. He was also a backup and didnt play for Team Ontario at the 2011 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. On Tuesday, Sutter noted that he sensed Paterson was ready for the chance to finally take the net in international competition. "He feels like this is his time," the coach said. Paterson agrees. "I think so," he said when informed of Sutters assessment. "Its been a pretty long year from last year not just not being able to play, but having a sour taste in our mouth from a fourth-place finish so Im definitely looking forward to getting things going tomorrow." Zach Fucale will serve as the backup despite playing well in his pre-tournament start against Finland on Friday. The Halifax Mooseheads goalie has slightly better numbers than Paterson this season and is coming off a Memorial Cup win in May, but remained upbeat despite Sutters decision. "Even though I wont be playing I think Ill be still important," Fucale, who is a year younger than Paterson, said. "I mean, I have to make sure Im positive for the guys and always be ready. You can never know in these tournaments what can happen. Jake is playing really well, very sharp and were all happy. All I have to do is make sure Im ready and Im ready to accept that." In his two previous world junior stints behind Canadas bench, Sutter has opted to ride one goalie most of the way giving the backup just one start in 12 games. "Lets see how Game 1 goes," Sutter said when asked if Fucale would get a start at some point. "I really dont know. You got to assume when youre playing a lot of games in a short period of time that you need both goalies, but were going to start with Patty and then well make a determination wholl play in Game 2."

Unai Emerys Sevilla are going for an historic third straight Europa League title, but Liverpool have beaten Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal en-route to the final and Souness told Sky Sports News HQ he thinks the Premier League side will have too much for their Spanish opponents.I fancy Liverpool big time, Souness said. Theyve got the bit between their teeth. I think they will win it and they will win it with a bit of style - theyll have too much for Sevilla. I know they have done well in this competition, but in Spain youve got three big teams and beyond that youve got a lot of averageness.I just think Liverpool will have far too much for them on the night. They will go into the game with their tails up and full of confidence. While you would expect me to back Liverpool, I do try to step back from the association I have with the football club and - without being biased - I think there is only one winner. I think they will win it and they will win it with a bit of style - theyll have too much for Sevilla. Graeme Souness on Liverpool Liverpool may have only finished in eighth place in the Premier League, but Souness believes Jurgen Klopps arrival at Anfield has made a big impact - transforming the atmosphere around the club to inspire the run to Wednesdays final.Hes got everyone excited, everyone believing that the future is bright, Souness said, before adding that he expects the Liverpool manager to stick with similar tactics to those which got the club to this stage.If you come up with a formula where you can turf out the favourites Dortmund and turf out Villarreal, then it will be more of the same. I think theyll go for it, theyve got some very good players, Liverpool. I think theyll have way too much for this team. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has brought a positive atmosphere to Anfield Fellow Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher agrees that Klopp will stick with the tactical formula that helped Liverpool reach the final.It will be the team from the semi-final, Carragher said. You could see that on Sunday from the team against West Brom - 11 changes - so the team picks itself.But the former Liverpool centre-back is less confident that Liverpool will breeze past Sevilla on the night. Liverpool have knocked out Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund already I think its going to be a tough game, Carragher said. Its going to be a tougher proposition than Villarreal, even though Villarreal are further up the table in La Liga.Sevilla have got huge experience in this competition, the players have been here before, theyre used to playing in finals and winning trophies. But I thinnk if Liverpool can take that performance against Villarreal into the final then I think they can just about do it. Luis Sardinas Jersey. .One of Klopps biggest dilemmas will be deciding which of his centre-forwards should start the game in Basel. Divock Origi was sensational up top in both legs against Borussia Dortmund and was named Liverpools Player of the Month for April, but has only just returned to training after an ankle injury. Sevilla have won the last two Europa League titles Christian Benteke has also impressed in the last few weeks of the season, but Souness believes Daniel Sturridge is the pick of the bunch.I think Sturridge has as much ability as any striker out there in British football right now, Souness said. I was going to say in the world, but the boys at Barcelona and Real Madrid are a wee bit different.Sturridges pure technical ability is up there with the very best. His problem is he just cant keep himself fit. He has to solve that because hes an exceptionally talented boy. I think Sturridge has as much ability as any striker out there in British football right now. Hes an exceptionally talented boy Graeme Souness Win on Wednesday and Liverpool will qualify for next seasons Champions League, making it five English teams in Europes elite competition next season. But Carragher told Sky Sports News HQ that winning a trophy will be more important for the players.The whole thing about winning on Wednesday is it gets you in the Champions League as well, Carragher said. Thats a whole different proposition, money-wise, prestige-wise, attracting players-wise. Its huge.But the biggest thing for those players, the manager, is to win a trophy. Forget what comes next season and European football, if you get your hands on trophies and medals hopefully that can be the start of something big under Jurgen Klopp. Winning a trophy could be the start of something big for Liverpool However, Souness believes that Champions League qualification is the biggest prize for Klopps side.You win and theres competition - the budgets different, the players that you can attract are very different, Souness said. So hell have one eye on one group of players I imagine and an eye on another group, because your budget becomes very different if youre in the Champions League.It really is a priority for them to be back in the Champions League because for the club to grow youve got to be in there on a regular basis. Football at the highest level is all geared around the big boys being in the Champions League.
