Team Canada has cut three high-profile youngsters from it's roster. 

TSN insider Bob McKenzie broke the news on Thursday revealing that three National Hockey League first round picks would not be making the roster cut for the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Korea.

The first player cut, or at least the first to be announced, was 19-year-old Detroit Red Wings first round pick Dennis Cholowski. Cholowski is a defenseman currently playing in the Western Hockey League where he will be returning after this announcement. 

Also cut was 18-year-old Las Vegas Golden Knights first round draft pick Cody Glass. Glass is a center who was lighting up the score sheet in the WHL so the Portland Winter Hawks will likely be happy to get him back.

Last but certainly not least is Winnipeg Jets first round pick Logan Stanley. Stanley is a 19-year-old defenseman who plays for the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League where he had 25 points in 30 games. 

A lot of talent to be removing from your roster, but even without NHL players Canada boasts a ton of talent as usual.
