“It gives me pleasure to announce the squad for the CanAn Indoor Series,” said Mulder. “We will look to build off our Indoor World Cup momentum as we welcome a few new guys into the setup to end an already successful season strong.”


“I’d like to thank all those that made themselves available for this period. Lastly, I’d like to thank Canada for agreeing to host us. We look forward to three competitive games in Toronto.”
