Projected 2014 Team Canada Roster

Projection - Two Years Out

With two years to go before puck drop at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, TSN unveiled the 23 men at the time that were prime candidates to be on the men's Olympic hockey team (Originally launched in February of 2012).

Forwards

Steven Stamkos - LW
Breakdown: Stamkos has developed into one of the most dangerous scorers in hockey.

Sidney Crosby - C
Breakdown: One of the leaders of Team Canada and the man who scored the golden goal for Canada in Vancouver.

Tyler Seguin - RW
Breakdown: In just his second season Seguin is already an impact player, in 2014 he will be even more of a threat.


Jamie Benn - LW
Breakdown: Benn is just scratching the surface of his talent as he is an emerging star in Dallas.

Claude Giroux - C
Breakdown: Giroux is on pace to score 30 goals for the first time in his career in 2011-2012.

Corey Perry - RW
Breakdown: Last year's winner of the Maurice "Rocket" Richard trophy after leading the league in goals.


Taylor Hall - LW
Breakdown: Hall continues to become a top-end talent after being selected first overall in 2010.

Jonathan Toews - C
Breakdown: Toews is in line to take over from Jarome Iginla as the heart and soul of the Canadian squad.

Rick Nash - RW
Breakdown: Nash showed in Vancouver that he is capable of contributing at both ends of the ice.


Eric Staal - LW
Breakdown: With Canada's depth down the middle, a skilled player like Staal may be asked to move to the wing.

Ryan Getzlaf - C
Breakdown: Getzlaf will be 28-years-old when Canada takes the ice in Sochi and will be counted on as a veteran presence.

Jordan Eberle - RW
Breakdown: No one can forget what Eberle did for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships.


Defence

Kris Letang - D
Breakdown: Letang has come into his own for the Penguins, on pace for another 50-point season in Pittsburgh.

Shea Weber - D
Breakdown: Another member of Team Canada's gold medal group, and now one of the best defenders in the NHL.


Marc Staal - D
Breakdown: The 6'4, Staal will help replace the size lost by former defenders like Chris Pronger and Rob Blake.

Drew Doughty - D
Breakdown: Despite his age, this would be Doughty's second stint with the Olympic Team.


Mike Del Zotto - D
Breakdown: Del Zotto brings a welcome combination of defensive ability and offensive skill.

Alex Pietrangelo - D
Breakdown: Much like Del Zotto, Pietrangelo is showing that he can produce points along with being a solid defender.


Goaltenders

Carey Price - G
Breakdown: Not only does Crawford believe that Price will be Canada's top netminder in 2014, he believes he is the best Canadian right now.

Marc-Andre Fleury - G
Breakdown: Fleury has proven himself during the Penguins playoff runs, including their Stanley Cup in 2009.

Roberto Luongo - G
Breakdown: Luongo was in net for Canada in 2010, but the Canadians might decide to go in a different direction in Sochi.


Spares

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - F
Breakdown: Nugent-Hopkins would be the 13th forward for Canada. If he can bulk up in the next two years, he could be a dominant force in 2014.

Tyler Myers - D
Breakdown: Myers has had his struggles since his rookie season, but with a couple more years of experience he will likely be ready to at least be Canada's seventh defenceman.
