Canada Unveils Veteran Hockey Team for PyeongChang

Canada Unveils Veteran Hockey Team for PyeongChang

He'll be joined by several other familiar faces in Vancouver, including former Canucks Maxim Lapierre and Mason Raymond, as well as former Vancouver Giant turned Edmonton Oiler Gilbert Brulé. Just a few days ago, USA Hockey announced a preliminary roster highlighted by former stars like Brian Gionta and journeymen like Mark Arcobello and Bobby Butler. He was drafted in the second round by the Colorado Avalanche in 2009 and split his time between the NHL and minor leagues from 2011 to 2016, scoring 24 points in 84 career games with the Avalanche, Phoenix Coyotes and Nashville Predators. Poulin appeared in 50 games for the New York Islanders over a five-year span, and now plays in the Austrian Hockey League.

"All of our players, somewhere along the line, they've been told no, they're not going to get a chance to continue their National Hockey League career or even start it in some ways", head coach Willie Desjardins told reporters as the roster was revealed.

But with the league holding its talent back during the 2018 games, Team Canada, like other nations, has a roster of players now skating in pro leagues overseas and in North American minor leagues. Peters plays in Germany, Scrivens in the KHL and Poulin for a Croatian team that plays in the Austrian league.

"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.

Expectations are sky high in Canada where boys and girls grab sticks and start whacking at pucks nearly as soon as they start walking.

More than 100 players participated in four pre-Olympic tournaments to help with the decision-making.

Few fans are familiar with the bulk of the National Hockey League castoffs coach Willie Desjardins will have 19 days to meld into a contender, but they all have tremendous tales of perseverance to realize the dream of putting on the Maple Leaf next month in Korea.
