Sens' Kelly named to Canadian Olympic team

Sens' Kelly named to Canadian Olympic team

Despite the presence of former NHL veterans like Mason Raymond, Ben Scrivens, Max Lapierre and Chris Kelly Roy and others, those visiting the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto Thursday afternoon were largely unfamiliar with the new Team Canada.

Defenceman Chris Lee is the lone player from Canada's 2017 world hockey championship team on the roster. He was drafted in the second round by the Colorado Avalanche in 2009 and split his time between the NHL and minor leagues from 2011 to 2016, scoring 24 points in 84 career games with the Avalanche, Phoenix Coyotes and Nashville Predators.

A 6-foot-2, 199-pound junior defender at St. Cloud State, Borgen has played in 18 games for the Huskies this year with a goal and seven assists to his name.

The team will be coached by former Vancouver Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins who is from Climax with one of his assistants being Saskatoon's Dave King.

And as unlikely as that might seem given the 25-man roster of European-based players Hockey Canada unveiled Thursday, Desjardins believes his crew will be armed with a work ethic capable of conquering all obstacles.

VERNON - Hockey Canada has announced the roster for the men's Olympic hockey team and a Vernon player has made the cut.

Kelly played a handful of games for Belleville on a tryout form (PTO) earlier this season, then was released on December 20 to play for Canada at the Spengler Cup. Mat Robinson and Chris Lee are the only players on Team Canada without previous National Hockey League experience.

"I said, 'that's going to be easy, because we all have the same goal.' And we have it again". "When a Canadian team or a Canadian athlete is competing, you're always cheering them on".

With the NHL deciding to end its Olympic participation Hockey Canada was forced to cast a wide net to assemble a squad for the February 9-25 Games, cobbling together a team from far flung leagues and countries.

All but three of the Canadian players are now plying their trade in European leagues, with 13 of them coming from Russia's Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

"These guys. they earned it", Burke told reporters in Calgary. "I think it's a challenge but we will represent Canada (well)".

"But for the players that are going there, they're playing for their country and it's still going to be a huge tournament, a lot of people watching and I think it's going to be a great tournament, even if the National Hockey League is not there".
