Some Saskatchewan flavour on Olympic men's hockey team

Vernon's Andrew Ebbett named to Canadian men's Olympic hockey team

And as unlikely as that might seem given the 25-man roster of European-based players Hockey Canada unveiled Thursday, Desjardins believes his crew will be armed with a work ethic capable of conquering all obstacles.

Global data analytics company Gracenote predicted gold for Canada in men's hockey as part of a 33-medal haul in Pyeongchang. The 26-year-old last played in the Show in 2015-2016, when he suited up for two games for the Predators. On Wednesday, TSN's Darren Dreger reported that he turned down an invitation, likely because he preferred to play NCAA rather than potentially be the No. 7 or No. 8 defenseman.

"When I won the Olympics in '94, there were no National Hockey League players and for me it was one of the biggest tournaments I ever played, so I have that perspective of the tournament - it doesn't have to be the National Hockey League players", Forsberg said.

Brent Kellington @IbBK: "Really excited to see @ben_scrivens play for Team Canada!"

Jon Gruden already placing more onus on Derek Carr
Those candidates were Oakland tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and Southern California offensive coordinator Tee Martin . Gruden received a massive financial commitment from the Raiders, receiving a 10-year, $100 million deal.

"We had all three at the Deutschland Cup ... and they've all had really solid years", said USA head coach Tony Granato. That's Canada's team, playing Canada's game.

Um, who are these guys?

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

A year ago, Canadian forward Wojtek Wolski was in a hospital bed recovering from surgery on a broken neck.

Also, forwards Gilbert Brule, Mason Raymond, and Wojtek Wolski and goaltender Ben Scrivens are former National Hockey League veterans on the team.

Thirteen players come from the KHL, four from the Swiss league, three each from Sweden and the AHL, and one from Germany and Austria.

Peters went 25-38-9 in a career spent mainly with the Carolina Hurricanes as a backup to Cam Ward.

Hockey Canada vice-president Scott Salmond said the team selection process had lasted 14 months, involving seven tournaments and more than 100 players. Canada starts Olympic play in a group with the Czech Republic, Switzerland and host South Korea.

Gracenote predicted gold for bobsledder Kaillie Humphries, the Kevin Koe and Rachel Homan curling teams, figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond, moguls skier Mikael Kingsbury, snowboarder Max Parrot and the men's hockey team.

The women's team was named in late December, though the roster contains no B.C. ties, let alone Vancouverites.
