A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Canada’s KHL options for the upcoming Olympics in Pyeongchang. This latest entry looks at the other candidates from Sweden and Switzerland, to college and junior hockey. Full disclosure, the list is a bit of a doozy. But this is still a fun exercise for the hockey-mad Olympics fans out there.
Also, with all of this BS surrounding the men’s side of the tournament this year, it is important that the Woman’s Hockey games get their due in terms of coverage and viewership. Unlike the men and the NHL they are actually sending the top of their sport so be sure to tune in.
Without further ado, here are the names that Canada will look to round out their Olympic roster.
With the World Juniors around the corner and Olympics closely following, Canadian hockey fans are waiting on bated breath to see who will represent us in Pyeongchang…
Without the NHL’s participation in the Olympics, one of the most anticipated international hockey tournaments of the year will likely turn into the Spengler Cup with better media coverage.
With the potential exclusion of Russia at the Olympics the field could be wide open. The Americans will send an NCAA all star squad, while Sweden and Finland will scrounge from their professional leagues to fill out their rosters. But given the sheer volume and reach of their hockey program, there are plenty of options at Canada’s disposal.
