3 former Blackhawks named to Canada's Olympics hockey team

Ex-NHL and Former Canuck Derek Roy makes the Canada OImypic team

The team was announced by Hockey Canada Thursday morning in Calgary, and there will be some Saskatchewan content on the squad.

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, the league declined to halt play for the Pyeongchang Games, citing insurance and travel costs as well as the fact that it doesn't directly benefit financially from the Games.

Linden will join a number of other Canadians who play in the KHL and in pro teams across Europe as the National Hockey League did not allow its players to participate in the 2018 Games.

"These guys ... they earned it", Burke said. He also scored the only goal in the shootout win gold medal game against Canada.

Training camp starts January 28 in Latvia.

Hockey Canada vice-president Scott Salmond said the team selection process had lasted 14 months, involving seven tournaments and more than 100 players.

Klinkhammer, now playing in the KHL, was held off the scoresheet in his only game with the Hawks during the 2010-11 season.

Brule has played in the Kontinental Hockey League since 2014, suiting up for five different teams in the European-Asian league, known as the second best in the world behind the NHL.

After seeing the hand Vegas and the Golden Knights were dealt to start their journey, and how they've responded, is it really that impossible to believe this rag-tag group of Canadians can't be competitive in the 12-team tourney starting February 15?

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. "There'll be a gold-medal effort and there won't be one guy that puts that jersey that this isn't the highlight of their hockey career and the highlight of their family's career".

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.

Ebbett is now playing in Europe, which is why he was eligible to play for the national squad.

"That's not to say that some of these kids aren't at the development stage where they can play with me", he said.

The 33-year-old Leggio has played the past three seasons in Germany and has been with the U.S.at two world championships.

"A lot like other Canadians, they've managed to battle it and fight back", Desjardins said.
