Team Canada Hockey Quebec Connection

Canada’s Men’s Olympic Hockey Team roster revealed for Sochi 2014, and there’s a strong Quebec presence.

The hockey team representing Canada for the Olympics in Sochi includes some interesting players and two strong players from the Montreal Canadians. Actually, 8 players from “Les Canadiens” will be playing in the Olympics only on different teams. The two “Canadien” players on “Team Canada are PK Subban (Defence) from Toronto and Carey Price (Goaltender) from Anahim Lake, BC. The six other players playing for other teams are P. Budaj (Slovakia), Andrei Markov (Russia), Alexei Emelin (Russia), Raphael Diaz (Switzerland), Max Pacioretty (USA), and Thomas Plekanec (Czech Republic).

As always in the Olympics, we have our favorite team, but at the same time have to cheer on the local boy, whether he’s on that team or not, if you like Max Pacioretty for example, you’ll be cheering on the USA, so we’re stuck between a rock and a hard place.

The other members of Team Canada besides Subban and Price, are Roberto Luongo (Montreal), Mike Smith (Kingston), Duncan Keith (Winnipeg), Drew Doughty (London), Shea Weber (Sicamous), Alex Pietragelo (King City), Jay Bouwmeester (Edmonton), M.Edouard Viasic (Montreal), Dan Hamhuis (Smithers), Sidney Crosby (Cole Harbour), Jonathan Toews (Winnipeg), John Taveres (Mississauga), Ryan Getziaf (Regina), Patrice Bergeron (Ancienne-Lorette), Patrick Sharp (Winnipeg), Matt Duchene (Haliburton), Jamie Benn (Victoria), Chris Kunitz (Regina), Corey Perry (Peterborough), Steven Tamkos (Markham), Patrick Marleau (Aneroid), Rick Nash (Brampton), Jeff Carter (London).

Hopefully Canada can pull off another gold medal like they did in Vancouver 2010 and they appear to have the team to do it this time around too.

Go Canada.
