Hockey Canada to announce men’s Olympic roster Tuesday
Just a reminder that Hockey Canada will announce its 2014 Olympic roster tomorrow morning in Toronto. We’ll probably write a post or two about it, if you think hockey fans might be interested in the topic.
Who will make it? Who won’t? Well, TSN’s Bob McKenzie is pretty plugged in with the decision-makers, and he announced his projections yesterday on Twitter.
Among those left off McKenzie’s list: Chris Kunitz, Eric Staal, Joe Thornton, Dan Boyle, and Brent Seabrook.
A couple of inclusions on the blue line that may surprise you (until you’re reminded they shoot left, not right): Dan Hamhuis and Marc-Édouard Vlasic.
And yes, PK Subban made McKenzie’s list.
Now, the following list isn’t set in stone; it’s just his best guess. We’ll know its real accuracy tomorrow.
