Former Tiger Linden Vey named to Team Canada for Olympics

But with the league holding its talent back during the 2018 games, Team Canada, like other nations, has a roster of players currently skating in pro leagues overseas and in North American minor leagues.

However, some of the players to make up the roster are actually former NHLers who are unsigned or playing in different leagues around the world.

With about a month to go until the start of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea, much of the focus has been on politics rather than athletics.

Also named to the team were Andrew Ebbett and Rob Klinkhammer, both of whom had brief stints with the Hawks.

Genoway, of Morden, Man., played at UND from 2006-11 and served as captain for his final two seasons.

It could be an incredible story for these players; they could be Canada's heroes in this tournament and in this Olympics.

The 31-year-old Zapolski has a 1.61 goals-against average and.937 save percentage in 34 games for Jokerit in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.

Canada's training camp starts Jan. 28 in Latvia, with exhibition games in Riga on Feb. 4 against Latvia and Feb. 6 against Belarus.

The U.S. and Canadian men's and women's rosters have already been announced.

Goloubef, an Oakville, Ontario native, skates for the AHL's Stockton Heat, where he has six goals and 14 points in 27 games as a defenseman.

"Today I am so proud and so excited". The emphasis was on skill at the forward positions, a mobile defence and some size - or The Canadian Way, as Burke put it.

They are all first-time Olympians, but as a group have played in a combined 5,544 NHL games, led by 2011 Stanley Cup winner Chris Kelly. Maxwell, who is 26, has played three-plus seasons in the Czech Republic after being a sixth-round pick of the Colorado Avalanche in 2009.

"We all who have played this game come from somewhere", Canada CEO Tom Renney told reporters.

All but three are from European-based leagues after the NHL bowed out of competing in South Korea.

The roster announcement, carried live on several networks, was made at the Hall of Champions at Hockey Canada's office in Calgary. "They're used to playing on the big sheet, they've worn the U.S.A sweater". We're past the phase of picking the team and now there's going to be some relief for our guys. Still, expectations are Canada will bring home its 14th Olympic men's hockey title.

"There were reasons for them to quit - there were reasons for them to say, 'I've had enough, '" said Desjardins, who has worked closely with team GM Sean Burke to select a squad featuring players like Ben Scrivens, Rene Bourque, Brandon Kozun, Mason Raymond and Derek Roy. They've stuck with it, they won't give up... that's what our team is about. "We saw them play, we had numerous events and everyone of them represented our jersey like we expect Canadians to do". Sure, the build-up will be lacking and the weeks of debate over second power-play units and third defensive pairings will mostly be muted. The Canadians engaged in a second-period brawl with a young Russian national team in a 3-2 loss at the Sochi tournament. I think that's pretty special.
