After the 3-1 win against Norway, Team Canada is testing out a few changes against Austria, all of which were in the plans before the tournament began, so don't panic.

Dan Hamhuis is out of the lineup in favour of Canadiens' Norris Trophy winning defenseman Subban, giving Canada four right handed defensemen and three lefties, as opposed to the four lefts and three righties they deployed against Norway. Subban adds an offensive element that Hamhuis couldn't provide, though he'll likely play about the same amount, around 10 minutes.

Patrick Sharp is the surprise scratch at forward to make room for Duchene to get a chance in the lineup. Sharp looked good but not great against Norway, as his line with Toews and Nash put up a fair number of chances but couldn't make them count.

In goal, Carey Price will be watching from the press box after starting game one, with Luongo starting against Austria and Smith serving as the backup.

Here's your official lineup:
