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. 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."

The veteran centre was 12 of 23 from the field as the Bobcats won for the third time in their last four games at home. Gerald Henderson scored 13 points and put the Bobcats ahead for good with 22.5 seconds left with a dunk off Ramon Sessions air ball. Blake Griffin was dominant early and finished with 27 points, but was 0 for 4 from the field in the fourth quarter. Jamal Crawford had 20 points for the Clippers, who fell to 11-12 on the road. The Bobcats improved to 2-0 without point guard Kemba Walker. Sessions had 10 points and a season-high eight assists. The Clippers came in having won their previous six games against the Bobcats by an average of 16.7 points. But it was the Bobcats who were in control most of this game. Charlotte took a 72-70 lead into the fourth quarter before opening a seven-point lead behind backup point guard Jannero Pargo, who scored seven quick points. Pargo has scored 22 points in his last two games with Walker out with a sprained ankle. The Clippers battled back as Crawford connected on a 3-pointer and converted a three-point play to cut the lead to one. Crawford tied the ggame at 89 with a minute remaining.dddddddddddd It was all Bobcats from there. Charlotte grabbed the lead for good with 22.5 seconds left when Sessions threw up a runner in the lane that hit nothing. Henderson, however, circled under the basket, grabbed the rebound and quickly elevated on the side of the rim for a dunk before the Clippers could react. The Clippers had two chances to tie the game, but Crawford missed a layup and Griffin couldnt connect on the putback. Josh McRoberts sank two foul shots with 13.9 seconds left to push the lead to four. Griffin missed another layup and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added two more free throws with 7.7 seconds remaining to seal the victory. The Bobcats didnt seem to have an answer for Griffin early as he proved too physical for McRoberts and Cody Zeller in the low post and too quick for Jefferson. But as the game went on the Bobcats doubled him more in the low post and slowed him down with Sessions stripping him at one point. Jefferson was a beast down low, too. He came in with the hot hand for the Bobcats, averaging 25.5 points and 12.7 rebounds while shooting 55.8 per cent over the last six games and didnt let up against the Clippers. NOTES: Jefferson has scored 20 or more points in seven straight games. ... Griffin has scored in double digits in every game hes played this season.
