As many of us hockey obsessed people witnessed on Tuesday morning, Hockey Canada finally selected its roster for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Team Canada Olympic hockey roster announced for Sochi 2014

After months of speculation and debate, we finally know who will be on Team Canada at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games next month.

Betting on Team Canada in men’s hockey at the Sochi 2014 Olympics

As usual, Team Canada goes into the Olympic Games (with NHL participation) as the best team on paper. They have the most talent and the most depth of any country in the world. Of course as everyone knows, that doesn’t guarantee anything.

Canada Has a New Cheer! According to Pepsi That is…

Have you seen the big Pepsi marketing campaign asking for Canadians to submit a new cheer for cheering on Team Canada in 2010? Essentially they wanted Canadians (or customers) to come up with a Canadian equivalent to “U-S-A U-S-A!” or “Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!!!”. Well, it seems as though they’ve come up with a cheer.

Mason Raymond Gets a Job at Dairy Queen, and a Sneak Peak at the New Team Canada Jerseys for 2010

Cool story from this week. Mason Raymond worked a shift at Dairy Queen yesterday, to help out with Miracle Treat Day. Proceeds of all Blizzards sold on Miracle Treat Day go to help the Children’s Hospital.
