Little buzz for Olympic hockey this year

Donors who contribute $50 or more will receive the T-shirt and have a chance to win autographed merchandise, tickets to future Sabres games and meet-and-greet opportunities. Suddenly, scouts were watching video of players toiling in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League and European elite and secondary leagues, seeking candidates who might have been too small or too slow for the NHL or were late bloomers and would welcome an unexpected shot at Olympic glory. It might just be what brings us world peace.

That is the last time Canada has lost a women's ice hockey final, having won the last four gold-medal matches. The players' average age is over 29. Team USA had yet to leave for Pyeongchang, and some of the most ardent supporters of US women's hockey already were writing the team off.

Carter said he's aware that a perception that black people know or care little about hockey.

"The tournament in general is going to be built with teams with lots of guys that this is the greatest event for them and they didn't necessarily think they were going to get this opportunity", Canada GM Sean Burke said.

Team USA needs its veterans to be great. "We've got players who suffered that heartbreak once, maybe twice, and we've got players who've never felt that". But that's not our concern.

Luck may have played a part for all of the players suiting up at the Games, but now that they are on the team, they aren't just happy to be there, said Elliott. "I suspect it's going to look different, it's going to feel different and we're excited to play", Stauber said. Canada opens their Olympic tournament on February 15 against Switzerland. There are players on nearly every team who are familiar because they played in the National Hockey League at one point. They didn't give up. Maybe to come back for one or two years in the National Hockey League is a possibility, but I've really enjoyed my time in the KHL and playing overseas.

Over in the women's competition, perennial favorites Canada and United States are expected to achieve success again, but the talent gap is closing, which could make the tournament more exciting than the men's one. Alas, the Lundqvist on Sweden's roster is Joel, not his twin brother, New York Rangers goalie Henrik. He most recently led the U.S.to a gold medal at the 2017 IIHF Women's World Championship in Plymouth, Mich., after serving as an assistant/goalie coach on four world championship squads.

"I actually just had my 30th birthday back in September, and I'm like, man, I'm getting old", Duggan said with a laugh.

The U.S.' Miracle on Ice against the Soviet Union was in 1980, and it consisted of a team made up of amateur athletes. Their roster is unsafe for sure, but we have a team to compete with anybody. They're going to play fearless and on their toes regardless. Granato will no doubt be coaching with a bit of a heavy heart after the passing of team general manager Jim Johannson on January 21. They wanted to call everyone right away and tell everyone that I made the team. "Hopefully we'll stay out of the box so that we're not on the penalty kill a lot". Dahlin has 11 points in 29 games playing against grown men in the Swedish Hockey League and had six points in seven games at the world juniors. "Yeah, making the Olympics is pretty special, but the feeling of winning a gold medal, I think that trumps any other feeling. And now we have to go perform".
