Eric Staal, 37, leads way while world junior stars McTavish, Power offer fresh legs
Twelve years after winning Olympic hockey gold in Vancouver, forward Eric Staal returns to lead a group of Canadian men into the Beijing tournament that begins Feb. 9.
Other former NHL players announced Tuesday include forwards David Desharnais, Daniel Winnik, Josh Ho-Sang, Eric O'Dell, Ben Street and defencemen Jason Demers, Mark Barberio and Tyler Wotherspoon.
The league pulled its players from the Olympics in December due to the disruption in the regular-season schedule as a result of rising COVID-19 cases through the league.
More to come.
