Mahura happy to be back with Canadian juniors .
LONDON, Ont. - One of Josh Mahura's top priorities after Canada's junior team wrapped up practice Thursday was to find a laundromat. The Regina Pats defenceman was cut from the world junior championship roster on Friday and returned to Saskatchewan, but was then recalled to Canada's team base in southern Ontario on Sunday to sub in for the injured Dante Fabbro. Zipping back and forth across Canada meant Mahura didn't even get a chance to unpack, let alone do laundry.
