High expectations for Team Canada medal tally

Canada's 2018 Winter Olympics athletes tell us their favourite pump up songs to listen to before competing. Desjardins isn't concerned about that. In 1958, Canadian Willie O'Ree broke the National Hockey League color barrier, and not until the 1981-82 season did Val James become the first American-born black man to play in an National Hockey League game. Carpenter had a team-high four goals in Sochi and Bozek led all United States of America defensemen with five points.

Granato urged his players to spend as much time as they can together. "It's obviously different, but we play a team sport and everyone deserves to be on the team so ... hopefully we can come together and click well and click quickly to try and achieve our goal". "It's tough to deal with, but I think all the guys are on board with using that as a motivating factor in the sense that he picked this team and there was a lot of emotion and energy that he put into make this team". It's hockey, it's the Olympics and when Canada is on the ice, there may be names people don't really know but can you imagine that we don't get excited about it? We all know how sports works. "You're playing a lot of games in a short period of time".

With Lugano of the Swiss A League, he is a first-line defenseman with 24 points in 41 games, a plus-5 who is depended upon for both power play and penalty kill, something mimicked at times during the U.S.'s Deutschland Cup trial and error. Or maybe another goaltender will pull off what Latvia's Kristers Gudlevskis nearly did when making 55 saves to give Canada a scare in the quarterfinals in Sochi.

"Jordan's a great player, and he doesn't need my advice", Eruzione said.

The Olympic Athletes of Russia, which is the name given to the Russian team after the nation was banned from Pyeongchang due to extensive doping, will be led by National Hockey League veterans Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk.

Under normal circumstances, there would have been no room to wonder who would captain Canada's men's ice hockey team at a Winter Olympic tournament; that mantel belonged to Sidney Crosby in 2014, and he's been the face of the program during its recent, dominant global stretch.

"I've played in some big games, some Game 7s and, of course, in a winner-take-all Game 7 of a Stanley Cup final".

Also on the list: Willie O'Ree, who broke the NHL's color barrier when he played for the Boston Bruins in 1958.

Longtime Boston College coach Jerry York, who coached Team USA's captain Brian Gionta, said it's going to be fun to watch some of those players - if he can stay up that late. A trivia quiz on its Team Canada Twitter feed asked which two players have each played for 13 different pro teams? Amanda Kessel is a two-time Olympian and won the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, presented annually to the top player in NCAA Division I women's ice hockey, in 2013. "We were given an opportunity that we never expected, and I think that's an advantage to us because I think it'll take a little bit of pressure off us and we can all enjoy it and relish the opportunity".

After growing up in Clinton, Dalton ended up in the US for junior and college hockey. "Most of us have been in Europe, and our careers have been up and down", O'Neill said.

This time the schedule was more conducive to partaking in the festivities as the women don't play their first game until Saturday afternoon.

There are some obvious reasons for the seemingly widespread disinterest starting with the chosen site location in South Korea.

If nothing else, Dalton is treating the chance to play in the Olympics for his adopted country as a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Using it more for assessment than competition, that team lost all three games but held an early 2-0 lead on gold-medal favorite Russian Federation before surrendering five consecutive goals. A scheduling snafu four years ago kept the squad from experiencing that thrill in Sochi, Russia. Sanguinetti scored the only goal in the 2-1 loss to Slovenia in the opener, one of only four goals scored by Team USA over the three games. "Some players get that break, and others don't". "So either guy can play".
