They just care about the level of compete and how competitive the tournament will be. It's a daunting assignment, but one head coach Willie Desjardins is familiar with. He was on the world championship teams in 2010 and 2014.

After the International Olympic Committee opened its doors to the NHL at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Canada has re-exerted its status as ice hockey's super power by taking gold in 2002, 2010 and 2014 but returning home empty-handed in 1998 and 2006.

"The goal is always gold", Burke said. Desjardins' time in Vancouver started with such promise, as he implemented some innovative tactics, including a willingness to ice the puck in order to score an empty net goal, something that made sense statistically even if it rankled old-school thinking.

"These guys. they earned it", Burke told reporters in Calgary. We used them in multiple events.

"You don't want to go out there not having that pressure behind you", Wakefield said.

Canada's training camp starts January 28 in Latvia, with exhibition games in Riga on February 4 against Latvia and February 6 against Belarus. For the first time since 1994, the National Hockey League is not allowing its players to participate in the Winter Games.

Hockey Canada made the announcement on Thursday. We thought for sure he'd be on the team, and he comes in and things don't go well the first (preparatory) tournament. Our power play was one key reason we lost in some tournaments.

According to Elliott's fiancée, Katie Cairns, the former NHLer was gunning for a spot on the Olympic team for months as it became clear the players from the league wouldn't be making the trip. That's something we'll have to work on to be successful.

You can find the full roster including stats on the Hockey Canada website.

Team Canada will be led by former National Hockey League forwards Gilbert Brule, Mason Raymond, Derek Roy and Wojtek Wolski and goaltender Ben Scrivens.

"They have a dream of representing their countries - for some guys that's the only reason they're playing this year". "Because I just remember feeling blank and being in shock".

Most recently the Canadian team has played at the Sochi Cup, Tournament of Nikolai Puchkov in St. Petersburg, Karjala Cup, Channel One Cup in Russian Federation, and Spengler Cup in Switzerland.

There will be no Newfoundlanders pulling on a Canadian Hockey Jersey when the Winter Olympics kick off next month in South Korea.

"A lot like other Canadians they've managed to battle and fight back. I respect that and I think Canadians will as well".

"That's not to say that some of these kids aren't at the development stage where they can play with me", he said. I respect that and I think Canadians will as well. "The Spengler Cup came out of that and only then did I start thinking about the Olympic team". "You know you'll get our all".
