Goaltender Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers, defencemen Trevor Daley and Braydon Coburn and forward Erik Christensen were the last players released Monday morning.
The cuts came one day after head coach Marc Habschied let go defenceman Maxime Fortunus and forwards Duncan Milroy and Eric Staal.
With the last four players trimmed, Canada's 22-man roster for the Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 tournament in Halifax is now set.
The duel for the two goaltending spots turned into a three-way battle between Drouin-Deslauriers, Marc-Andre Fleury and David LeNeveu .
Fleury secured his roster position with a sensational performance in a Sunday exhibition game against university skaters. The choice betwen Drouin-Deslauriers and LeNeveu wasn't as clear. But the Canadian club opted for the 19-year-old LeNeveu, leaving Drouin-Deslauriers as the odd man out.
"I respect their decision, but I'm disappointed," said Drouin-Deslauriers. "I'm satisfied with my camp. I did a lot of great things. Now I have to work harder if I want to come back next year."
Christensen appeared to be one of the Canadian players destined to join the team in Halifax after a pair of stand-out intrasquad games during the selection camp. However the 19-year-old failed to make an impression in the university exhibition outings.
"A lot of guys have talked about Mike Comrie (who) I guess tried out for the team for two years and led the tournament in scoring for both years and still didn't make it," said Christensen. "I think it's how you play. I don't know what it is, but I wasn't good enough."
Christensen had no previous international hockey experience prior to last week.
Coburn, one of the top-ranked prospects for the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, was the last 17-year-old remaining in the selection camp.
"They told me I had a good camp, that I played well and it's a pretty big honour to be among the top nine (defenceman) invited to this camp and make it to the final day," said Coburn.
"I'm disappointed I couldn't make it this year. I kind of realized I wasn't going to fit into the mix because they say it's a 19-year-old's tournament."
Daley, a 19-year-old offensive blueliner, wasn't expecting to be one the last two rearguards released.
"When you stick around this long in the camp, obviously you're definitely surprised," said Daley. "I just wasn't one of the top seven."
