Former NHLers Raymond, Scrivens highlight Canadian men's Olympic hockey team

Vernon's Andrew Ebbett named to Canadian men's Olympic hockey team

"As hard as it was, it became obvious that certain players came to the forefront by the way they played and their commitment and determination to make this team".

In addition to representing his country, Klinkhammer said he is looking forward to the overall Olympic experience and staying in the Olympic Village with all of Canada's athletes. Poulin appeared in 50 games for the New York Islanders over a five-year span, and now plays in the Austrian Hockey League. It's a daunting assignment, but one head coach Willie Desjardins is familiar with.

That's the story for a B.C. hockey player who will find himself skating for Team Canada during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

He earned All-America honors twice while at UND and now plays in Finland in the KHL.

"I would say Sweden is up there and has a chance maybe to even to beat Russian Federation, but they have to have a really good tournament if they are going to grab gold or silver", he said.

That's in stark contrast to Canada's Olympic champion squads in Vancouver (2010) and Sochi (2014), which were stocked with National Hockey League stars.

The Canadian squad will open camp in 17 days in Riga, Latvia, where the team will spend eight days practicing and playing two exhibition games.

With the KHL breaking early, the Canadian team will convene in Latvia on January 28 where it will play exhibition games against Latvia and Belarus.

And unlike years past when the Jaguars struggled, this one should be pretty good. "We wanted to do the three games back-to-back". The Chargers are the designated "home" team , which means they will play only seven regular-season contests at StubHub Center.

A second-round pick by the New York Rangers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Thomas has played in 334 professional games, including 27 in the NHL as a member of the Rangers and Montréal Canadiens. Still, expectations are Canada will bring home its third straight Olympic gold medal and 14th men's title. "There'll be a gold-medal effort and there won't be one guy that puts that jersey that this isn't the highlight of their hockey career and the highlight of their family's career". They will take the place of National Hockey League stars who are not permitted to play in the Olympics for the first time since 1994.

"I think all hockey fans are looking at it as a bit of an unknown".

"Hockey Canada has once again left no stone unturned in putting this talented group of players together", said Chris Overholt, CEO and secretary general of the Canadian Olympic Committee. Our power play was one key reason we lost in some tournaments.

"A lot like other Canadians, they've managed to battle it and fight back", Desjardins said. The team will then fly to Pyeongchang and take part in the opening ceremonies before facing Sweden in a warmup game in Incheon on February 12.
