The deadline to announce the final roster spots for the World Cup has been moved up to Friday, May 27.

The original deadline was June 1. Presumably, the date was changed in order to avoid any conflict with the start of the Stanley Cup Final.

May 27 is also the day Game 7 between the Blues and Sharks would be played, if necessary.

Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final is scheduled for May 26.
