Chay Genoway makes Canada's Olympic hockey team

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

Howden has 15 goals and 14 assists in 49 KHL games this season, which helped put him on the radar for Canadian officials looking to fill the Olympic roster with non-NHL players.

Canada will ice a men's hockey team with more than 5,500 NHL games under its belt at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

With that in mind, Burke and company set about building a team they felt could compete against a variety of opponents.

"The bottom line is, we don't know who the skeleton guys are".

Worldwide data analytics company Gracenote predicted gold for Canada in men's hockey as part of a 33-medal haul in Pyeongchang.

Some like Chris Lee and Chay Genoway, who between them have one combined game of National Hockey League experience, have found jobs in Russian Federation with Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Lada Togliatti respectively.

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.

"I'm tickled pink", said Klinkhammer's father, Gerry.

"They have a dream of representing their countries - for some guys that's the only reason they're playing this year".

HP is readying two new Chromebooks to be shown at CES 2018 next before hitting markets in February 2018. Just like any other Chromebook it runs on ChromeOS and is now also compatible with Android apps.

"I think all hockey fans are looking at it as a bit of an unknown". I think that's the nature of Canadians.

Forwards Gilbert Brule, Mason Raymond, Derek Roy and Wojtek Wolski and goaltender Ben Scrivens are former National Hockey League veterans on the team.

In goal Ben Scrivens, Kevin Poulin and Justin Peters will vie for starting duties.

And as unlikely as that might seem given the 25-man roster of European-based players Hockey Canada unveiled Thursday, Desjardins believes his crew will be armed with a work ethic capable of conquering all obstacles.

The NHL declined to send its players to the Olympics this time around. Desjardins cherished hearing former NHLer Steve Thomas inform his son, Christian, he had made the team. You can see the full list for yourself below. "To get that chance and the honour to come back, that's what our team is all about".

The 12-nation men's tournament goes from February 14-25 at the Gangneung Hockey Centre and the Kwandong Hockey Centre.

None of this has been easy for anyone involved, given the "moving target" Hockey Canada prez Tom Renney reminded people of the soap opera that saw the International Olympic Committee and NHL part ways.

Hockey Canada names its final roster this morning in Calgary.

"We've got a guy that, No. 1, has been a great teammate everywhere he's been, but also a very steady, consistent performer", U.S. General Manager Jim Johannson said on a conference call. Our power play was one key reason we lost in some tournaments.
