Ireland's early tournament keeper question has been answered. Saskatoon's Mark Diakiw will be between the posts for the first couple of Ireland's games until Jonah Gardikiotis returns from Nova Scotia. I'm not sure what kind of deal Ireland made with Mark to convince him to only play a couple of games, but count them extremely fortunate to have such a good pick-up.
In other keeper news, Yorkton's Kevin Krause might not be able to play for Ukraine because of injury. No real backup for Ukraine could spell doom in the tough Group D.
