Andrew Ebbett, 35, of Vernon is on the Canadian Olympic men's hockey team.

Oakbank's Quinton Howden and Morden's Chay Genoway will be playing for the team in Pyeongchang, South Korea next month.

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

Badgers coach Tony Granato, who played in the 1988 Games, is the coach of this year's U.S. Olympic team, which does not feature any former Badgers players.

Goloubef, who played for UW from 2007 to 2010, is on an American Hockey League contract with the Stockton Heat.

Canada's first game is against Switzerland Feb. 15.

Burke, a former Olympian himself having played at the 1988 and 1992 Winter Games, had a much more hard task in constructing this team.

Original Motörhead Guitarist 'Fast' Eddie Clarke Dead at 67
Motörhead is known for their hits " Ace of Spades " (1980), "Killed by Death" (1984) and "Born to Raise Hell" (1994). Guitarist Phil has been left in a state of "shock" by the news, and hailed Eddie a "true rock "n" roller".

Dark Souls Remastered announced for PC with improvements
DARK SOULS: REMASTERED: The first title in the genre-defining action role-playing franchise is coming to Nintendo Switch. The Dark Souls Trilogy Box will release on May 24, 2018, the same day that Dark Souls Remastered releases in Japan.

Here's Everything Else Revealed in Today's Nintendo Direct Mini
Meanwhile, game developer Red Hook Studios has also revealed that "Darkest Dungeon" will also be released for the Nintendo Switch. Payday 2 - Dark Souls may be a surprisingly mature addition to Nintendo's library, but it's not quite as surprising as Payday 2 .

The KHL, regarded as the world's second-best league next to the NHL, has not said whether it will release players for the Olympics, a delay caused by the International Olympic Committee's decision to ban Russian Federation from competing in the 2018 Games.

Team Canada is certainly a veteran team loaded with experience.

He has played for Anaheim, Chicago, Minnesota, Phoenix, Vancouver and Pittsburgh.

Burke decided not to select any junior players. Rene Bourque played 725 National Hockey League games, notching 163 goals and 153 assists for six teams, including Calgary and Montreal.

Forsberg, who went on to win two Stanley Cups in a glittering NHL career, was speaking at an event hosted by Eurosport, where he will be a cornerstone of their Olympic hockey coverage next month.

Canada, of course, is the two-time defending gold-medal champion in the men's Olympic hockey competition. The average age for the squad is just over 31 years. He now plays for Bern SC in Switzerland.

But after that, Canada's success will depend on its goaltending trio of Ben Scrivens, Kevin Poulin and Justin Peters.
