HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT ON IIHF, NHL AND NHLPA AGREEMENT
TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 2014 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES
“On behalf of Hockey Canada, its board of directors and millions of fans and Canadians involved in the game of hockey from coast to coast, I would like to thank the IIHF, NHL and NHLPA on their dedicated efforts in ensuring the participation of NHL players in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games,” Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson said. “Hockey Canada’s task is now clear – to prepare our players, coaches and staff for the challenge of defending Olympic gold in Sochi in February 2014.
“Over the coming days, the management group, under the leadership of Steve Yzerman, will be announcing a coaching staff, a support staff and a list of players invited to attend a national men’s team orientation camp in late August in Calgary,” Nicholson said.
