Team Canada unveils 2022 Olympic roster

Recommended Posts

Lots of former NHLers on the roster. And a good showcase for some guys who may be trying to make a run at getting back into the NHL next season. And it's cool to see a few young guys get Olympic opportunities (Owen Power, Devon Levi, Mason McTavish).

 

Although, the only snub I can see is Kent Johnson not making the team. I thought he was a shoe in.

I’m happy for Eric Staal that he’s getting one more and likely his last opportunity at playing in the Olympics, after he couldn’t secure an NHL contract last summer. The only Olympics he’s played in was the 2010 Olympics.

Yeah, if this is how he ends his hockey career it'd certainly be a neat way to do it. 

 

I'm happy for everyone on the team though, as much as it sucks the NHL didn't send it's players, you've gotta be happy for all these guys who'd have otherwise never had a chance to be an Olympian. It's no small thing to these guys I'm sure. Especially if they somehow win gold.

I thought everyone was saying Dubnyk was a lock for the team? 

I thought he would be, maybe he doesn't feel comfortable heading over?

Definitely agree and hopefully some may be able to make the jump back into the AHL/NHL fold for the next season. Who knows if any peak an interest with an organization fighting to ice "full" rosters this season as well. 

 

I made a note of Kent Johnson's snub too but just came across a report from Chris Johnston mentioning that Kent is coming along on too (in a faux taxi squad of sorts):
