What Colleges Make up Team USA Hockey Olympic Rosters for Pyeong Chang 2018

Two North Shore players will get a chance to live the Olympic dream as members of Canada's men's hockey team for the 2018 Winter Games running February 9-25 in PyeongChang, South Korea. "Mostly tears of happiness, but I am filled with so many emotions about what I have overcome". The gold medal game for men's hockey at this year's Olympics will be held on Sunday, Feb. 25.

Vey is the only player on the team from Saskatchewan, but head coach Willie Desjardins is from Climax, Sask., and went to the University of Saskatchewan. Bourque played with the Blackhawks for three seasons before signing with the Calgary Flames after the 2007-08 season.

"I always said it was a dream to come home and play", Howden told reporters just before his first game at Bell MTS Place. Pretty unbelievable. I never thought I'd be in this situation.

Added Team Canada GM Sean Burke: "When we go to these Olympics, this team will make Canada proud".

Genoway now plays for Lada Togliatti (Finland) in the KHL.

The OAR team has not been announced, but the players chosen will have to prove they are clean in order to be eligible in PyeongChang. The veteran-laden roster, with an average age of 31, does not include any players from the gold medal-winning under-20 team from the just completed World Junior Championship. Ebbett had two assists as Canada went 2-1 at the Sochi Hockey Open in August in Russian Federation.

With the NHL refusing to release its players for these Games, the Team Canada roster is made up of 25 players from seven different leagues across North America and Europe.

"I love the hunger of our team".

One he didn't think was possible until he was invited to one of the Canadian tryout camps in November, when they played the Swiss team in Switzerland and took part in a tournament in Finland. "I think it's a challenge but we will represent Canada (well)". And Canadians can be behind them every step of the way.

Andrew Ebbett, 35, of Vernon is on the Canadian Olympic men's hockey team.

"But for the players that are going there, they're playing for their country and it's still going to be a huge tournament, a lot of people watching and I think it's going to be a great tournament, even if the National Hockey League is not there". From Sidney Crosby's golden goal in Vancouver, to T.J. Oshie's one-man shootout show in Socci, Harkins says the Olympic platform can build superstars in an instant. The Canadian women have won four consecutive gold medals, including at the 2014 Sochi Games, when they defeated the United States in an epic overtime thriller.
