Canada excludes Kinrade from Olympic roster

WBS Pens player Christian Thomas named to Canadian Olympic team

Former Penguins Andrew Ebbett and Chris Lee also made the roster.

"It has been an exciting journey to arrive at this 25-player roster, and I want to congratulate these players on earning their place in history to represent Canada on the biggest sporting stage in the world - the Olympic Winter Games", said Team Canada general manager and former National Hockey League goalie Sean Burke in a news release.

Since the National Hockey League refused to release its players to represent their homelands in the tournament, participating teams have had to find players who have not been playing in the National Hockey League.

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

David Leggio (R) and Brandon Maxwell were named as two of the three goaltenders for the 2018 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team. Just a few days ago, USA Hockey announced a preliminary roster highlighted by former stars like Brian Gionta and journeymen like Mark Arcobello and Bobby Butler. "We saw them play, we had numerous events and everyone of them represented our jersey like we expect Canadians to do".

That changes this year as the NHL announced last April the league would not release its players or schedule a break in the season so its players could participate.

The 12-country men's hockey tournament at the 2018 Games goes from February 14-25 at the Gangneung Hockey Centre and the Kwandong Hockey Centre. Unlike the USA which chose several college players, Canada did not choose anyone from the NCAA ranks.

Forward Christian Thomas, a second-round pick of the New York Rangers in 2010 who is playing for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the AHL, got the news he had made the team from his father, former NHLer Steve Thomas.

"We're going to draw on that but we also know that to win hockey games, we're going to need big performances, we're going to need guys who come into the Olympics and seize the moment", said Burke. Canada starts Olympic play in a group with the Czech Republic, Switzerland and host South Korea.

All three played for Team USA at November's Deutschland Cup in Germany, the lone pre-Olympic tournament for the US men's national team. She has competed for the US since 2013 when she helped the team to a silver medal at the International Ice Hockey Federation U18 Women's World Championship.
