Eric Staal

“When you think of Team Canada, you think of Eric Staal.”

Those are big words from Captain Canada himself, Canadian GM Shane Doan. Staal was one of the marquee additions to Canada’s Olympic team that will fight for gold in Beijing, once again sporting a lineup devoid of NHL talent. 

With Staal remaining unsigned, he quickly became one of the most notable names when the NHL officially pulled out of the Olympics in December. Staal is no stranger to the Olympics, joining the team as the lone player to participate during the NHL era after winning gold in 2010.
