Canada to Name Team Today

Tough Choices for Canada

Well, hockey fans, remember the suspense that surrounded the Sidney Crosby lottery back in July? Brace yourselves for a similar experience Wednesday.
At 5 p.m. ET, Team Canada’s executive committee will unveil the 23 players – 13 forwards, seven defencemen and three goalies– who will defend Olympic gold in Turin, Italy, in February.

Well it’s not his jaw, but it’ll do

Los Angeles Kings center Jeremy Roenick will be out four to six weeks with a broken finger, an injury he found out about a day after not being selected to the U.S. Olympic hockey team.
“I found out this morning,” Roenick told The Canadian Press on Tuesday. “I have to go back [to Los Angeles] for surgery.”
Roenick broke the finger during Monday night’s 4-3 shootout win over Vancouver. He had a goal and an assist in the victory.
“Just when I was starting to get into a groove and getting things in the right place, this happens,” Roenick said. “But, oh well, what are you going to do?”

A Lou-Lou of a win: Devils stun Rangers

For most of last night, the Lou Lamoriello-coached Devils didn’t look any different from the bunch that had driven Larry Robinson to resign as coach.
But maybe the bizarre events of Monday did a little something to change the Devils’ luck.
Because with another awful defeat staring them in the face, the Devils scored two goals in a 16-second span in the third period to erase a one-goal deficit and give Lamoriello his first NHL coaching victory, a 3-1 decision over the Rangers last night at Madison Square Garden.


Penguins to unveil stadium plans

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ partner in a proposed $1-billion US development at the site of Mellon Arena is willing to put up $290 million to pay for a new 18,000-seat home for the NHL team, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The Penguins’ development, which would keep the team in Pittsburgh, is contingent on winning a licence for the city’s slot machine casino, however.
The development would also include offices, residential units and retail space.
