3 former Blackhawks named to Canada's Olympics hockey team

Despite the presence of former NHL veterans like Mason Raymond, Ben Scrivens, Max Lapierre and Chris Kelly Roy and others, those visiting the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto Thursday afternoon were largely unfamiliar with the new Team Canada. "As hard as it was, it became obvious that certain players came to the forefront by the way they played and their commitment and determination to make this team".

Elliott, a 26-year-old defenceman, starred with the North Van/Burnaby-based Northwest Giants of the BC Major Midget League before moving to Saskatoon to play WHL hockey with the Blades.

"A year ago today, he had a serious neck injury and thought his career was over", said Desjardins, a former Vancouver Canucks coach who has twice coached Canada's world junior entry.

As NBC Olympic Talk's Nick Zaccardi noted, 23 of 25 Canadian players have National Hockey League experience, compared to 15 of the 23 announced on the US roster.

These names includes Quinton Howden, Cody Goloubef and Brandon Kozun - who all played for Canada in the World Junior Hockey Championships.

He earned All-America honors twice while at UND and now plays in Finland in the KHL.

"I said, 'that's going to be easy, because we all have the same goal.' And we have it again".

Hockey Canada announced the final roster it will take to the 2018 Winter Olympics Thursday, beginning its attempt to capture a third consecutive gold medal.

Training camp starts January 28 in Latvia for the Canadians. In 2017 he was second on the team with eight points and five assists, and was the team's Player of the Game against Latvia.

Belleville Senators forward Chris Kelly has been around long enough to recall the last time National Hockey League players weren't at the Olympics. The Russian team, competing under a neutral flag due to the ban on formal Russian participation imposed over doping violations, are considered favorites for the gold medal.

The 12-nation men's hockey tournament at the 2018 Games goes from February 14-25 at the Gangneung Hockey Centre and the Kwandong Hockey Centre. Our power play was one key reason we lost in some tournaments.

Three other possible candidates are David Leggio and Brandon Maxwell, who are now playing professionally in Europe.

"You want them to do well, but I don't think I'll watch".

"Hockey Canada has once again left no stone unturned in putting this talented group of players together", said Chris Overholt, CEO and secretary general of the Canadian Olympic Committee.

"A lot like other Canadians they've managed to battle and fight back". I think people can relate to our team and that we'll be part of the Canadian fabric.
