And then there's forward Wojtek Wolski, who a year ago was recovering in hospital from a broken neck. Today, he is an Olympian.

Genoway, 31, of Morden, Man., is in his fourth year in Russia's KHL. "Mostly tears of happiness, but I am filled with so many emotions about what I have overcome".

"That's what our team's about". It's a daunting assignment, but one head coach Willie Desjardins is familiar with. "Their determination and their heart is incredible".

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.

The goal, even in the absence of NHLers, is gold. "And I will do everything I can to bring a gold medal home".

"Basically, we told the guys, 'Just go play hockey, '" said Johansson, who is attending the 10-nation tournament, which runs through Friday and being held in Buffalo.

Since being drafted by Florida in 2010, he's played just 97 National Hockey League games, including five for the Winnipeg Jets after they signed him as a free agent in 2016. Bourque played with the Blackhawks for three seasons before signing with the Calgary Flames after the 2007-08 season. "He has four goals and 13 assists in 49 games this season". Gilbert Brule saw action in 299 games with Edmonton and two other clubs.

Also, forwards Gilbert Brule, Mason Raymond, and Wojtek Wolski and goaltender Ben Scrivens are former National Hockey League veterans on the team. Peters plays in Germany, Scrivens in the KHL and Poulin for a Croatian team that plays in the Austrian league.

Canada will be solid in goal, mobile on defence, skilled and experienced up front - and above all hard to play against, according to the team braintrust.

"I love the hunger of our team".

No captain has been named yet.

One he didn't think was possible until he was invited to one of the Canadian tryout camps in November, when they played the Swiss team in Switzerland and took part in a tournament in Finland. "We had a lot of players play extremely well for us this year". "He asked if I had heard anything and I said no. Everybody was given an opportunity". Former Ottawa Senators forward Chris Kelly has spent time with the AHL's Belleville Senators this season, while Christian Thomas was loaned to the team from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

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. Pretty unbelievable. I never thought I'd be in this situation.
