Wakaw Sask.'s Linden Vey named to Olympic hockey team

Canadian men's Olympic hockey team unveiled

Forwards Gilbert Brule, Mason Raymond, Derek Roy and Wojtek Wolski and goaltender Ben Scrivens are also former National Hockey League veterans named to the team that will be counted on to bring big-game experience.

"It was extremely hard in some ways, but at the end of the day, I think like all teams, the players make the decisions by the way they play", Olympic team general manager Sean Burke said.

Oakbank's Quinton Howden is playing with Minsk Dynamo of the Kontinental Hockey League in Russian Federation this season.

"All of our players, at somewhere along the line, they've been told 'No, '" head coach Willie Desjardins said.

Kinrade, a defenceman playing in the KHL, had taken part in two Olympic tryouts but wasn't part of the 25-man roster announced Thursday morning.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveils sweeping changes to News Feed
With different, less viral types of content surfacing more often, people could end up spending their time elsewhere. Over the next few weeks, users will begin seeing fewer viral videos and news articles shared by media companies.

Also named to the team were 23 former NHL players, three of whom are playing in the American Hockey League: Kelly with Belleveille, the Ottawa Senators' affiliate; defenseman Cody Goloubef with Stockton, the Calgary Flames' affiliate, and forward Christian Thomas with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Pittsburgh Penguins' affiliate. Peters plays in Germany, Scrivens in the KHL and Poulin for a Croatian team that plays in the Austrian league. This means that traveling fans hoping to see Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid, and Alex Ovechkin play for the gold medal in South Korea will be totally out of luck.

"Oh, I think no matter what, whenever you put the jersey on and represent your country, it doesn't matter if it's exhibition or worldwide play or the Olympics, you're always making sure that you're giving 100 percent", Schuler said.

Expectations are sky high in Canada where boys and girls grab sticks and start whacking at pucks nearly as soon as they start walking. Still, expectations will be on Canada to bring home its 14th Olympic men's hockey title.

Goalies Justin Peters, Ben Scrivens and Kevin Poulin have 277 National Hockey League games between them, spread between eight teams.

Canada has won 13 men's hockey medals, including nine gold, since the first Olympic hockey tournament in Antwerp in 1920.

Kansas City Southern fell as much as 4.6 per cent after the report, its biggest loss in more than eight months. The next round of NAFTA talks - the sixth so far - will be held in Montreal from January 23 to 28.

Genoway earned All-American honors twice, leading UND to the NCAA Frozen Four as a senior. "... These guys are both pros, they're both every experienced on the Europe ice, and they have the ability to keep their team in the game".

Speaking at a well-attended team unveiling in Calgary about the emotional phone calls informing players of their Olympic fate, Desjardins echoed the clear sentiment this will mean everything to these players.

The 12-country men's hockey tournament at the 2018 Games goes from February 14-25 at the Gangneung Hockey Centre and the Kwandong Hockey Centre. I think people can relate to our team and that we'll be part of the Canadian fabric.

"We had all three at the Deutschland Cup ... and they've all had really solid years", said USA head coach Tony Granato. "I don't think you could say we missed anybody".

Fire reported on top floor of Trump Tower in NY
