  • Former Tiger Linden Vey named to Team Canada for Olympics

When USA Hockey announced its men's and women's Olympic teams at the NHL Winter Classic on January 1, it left two spots open on the men's team for additional goalies.

Linden Vey from Wakaw, Sask. made the team, along with former Moose Jaw Warrior Quinton Howden.

The roster for next month's tournament is made up entirely of professional players, most whom now play in Europe.

Burke didn't promise anything but "gold-medal effort" - which isn't exactly gold medal or bust.

But most are unknown or forgotten names playing in remote hockey outposts, like Gilbert Brule, taken with the sixth overall selection in the 2005 NHL draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets, who now earns a living with China-based team Kunlun Red Star in the KHL. "It's about guys that have received a "No" but found a way to make a 'Yes, '" said head coach Willie Desjardins.

As a part of the gold-medal winning U.S. National Junior Team in the 2017 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship in Montreal and Toronto, Canada, Terry total four goals and three assists in seven games, and scored three-straight shootout goals in the semifinals against Russia, and was named the US Player of the Game in the win.

The roster announcement, carried live on several networks, was made at the Hall of Champions at Hockey Canada's office in Calgary.

Alan Smithee @oiler_country: "I do not care who's on it, as long as they represent who we are: Canadians".

The lone Vancouverite is defenceman Stefan Elliott, a former Colorado Avalanche draft pick who's played 84 National Hockey League games with the Avalanche, Arizona Coyotes and Nashville Predators since his 2009 draft year. The Americans open preliminary-round play against Slovenia 7:10 a.m. ET on February 14, then take on Slovakia 10:10 p.m. February 15, followed by a 7:10 a.m. game on February 17 against Russian Federation. So he's a great story, if not one of the world's great players.

"There's a lot of teams that have a chance - Canada, the US, the Czechs, the Finns are all equal going into the tournament", he said.

There will be no Newfoundlanders pulling on a Canadian Hockey Jersey when the Winter Olympics kick off next month in South Korea.

Genoway, 31, spent five years playing college hockey down the highway at the University of North Dakota where he graduated as the fourth-highest scoring defencemen in school history. Thomas has also represented Canada twice on the worldwide stage twice in the last two months, participating in the Karjala Cup in November and emerging victorious at the Spengler Cup in December.

The women's national team was announced December 22.

Canada has won Olympic gold in Vancouver (2010) and Sochi (2014).
