GRENOBLE, France – The French national team lost three players due to injury during its training camp for the World Championship.

Teddy Trabichet has to undergo a shoulder surgery following the exhibition games in Latvia last week and has been replaced with rookie Gary Levêque.

Two other players left last week’s camp with injuries. Forward Julien Desrosiers suffered an ankle injury in a game against Belarus. Defender Nicolas Besch won’t be able to participate due to a wrist injury.

France will also have to do without two of its top players. Goaltender Cristobal Huet is busy with the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL playoffs, coach Dave Henderson has decided to go to the World Championship without SC Bern forward Sébastien Bordeleau.
