Ex-NHL and Former Canuck Derek Roy makes the Canada OImypic team

Forsberg, who went on to win two Stanley Cups in a glittering NHL career, was speaking at an event hosted by Eurosport, where he will be a cornerstone of their Olympic hockey coverage next month.

They don't exactly bring the star power of Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews and Carey Price, all Olympic gold medallists.

Instead, this iteration of Team Canada will come from seven leagues, across Canada and the United States.

The names on their backs will be unfamiliar to most, but the task at hand for the men on Canada's Olympic hockey team is easy to identify.

Alan Smithee @oiler_country: "I do not care who's on it, as long as they represent who we are: Canadians". They've stuck with it, they won't give up ...

"All of our players, at somewhere along the line, they've been told 'No,"' head coach Willie Desjardins said at the roster reveal Thursday.

Yes, Mason Raymond, former Maple Leaf and 32-year-old Swiss leaguer - you're among the selected group being charged with attempting to defend the gold medals won by Canada's best NHLers at the previous two Olympics.

You'll also have the option to play alongside friends with the Tropical Freeze co-op mode, which worked pretty well on the Wii U. In the new Nintendo Mini-Direct, it was revealed that we can expect the game to come to the newer system in May.

"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".

What a mix. Lots of heart and guts. But as an NHLer, Vey was a role player who played a combined 138 games in L.A., Vancouver and Calgary.

Kelly, 37, played 13 National Hockey League seasons with the Bruins and Ottawa Senators.

"I said, 'that's going to be easy, because we all have the same goal.' And we have it again".

Goloubef, who played for UW from 2007 to 2010, is on an American Hockey League contract with the Stockton Heat.

Hockey Canada vice-president Scott Salmond said the team selection process had lasted 14 months, involving seven tournaments and more than 100 players. We thought for sure he'd be on the team, and he comes in and things don't go well the first (preparatory) tournament. "If I was a Canadian I'd appreciate they've taken their families to Europe with no family around just so they can be on this team". Thomas has also represented Canada twice on the global stage twice in the last two months, participating in the Karjala Cup in November and emerging victorious at the Spengler Cup in December.
