Some International Hockey

Pierre LeBrun at Sportsnet.ca gets a 19-month jump plotting his Team Canada Olympic lineup for the 2010 games:

There’s still an NHL season and a half to play out, but as we sit here in May 2008, here’s who I would dress for the February 2010 Games.

Up front, these are my nine offensive guys at forward, in no particular order: Crosby, Eric Staal, Jarome Iginla, Vincent Lecavalier, Rick Nash, Ryan Getzlaf, Dany Heatley, Joe Thornton and Jonathan Toews. Don’t be surprised by the last name, he’s a stud and 19 months from now you won’t question Toews on the Olympic team.

And in other international hockey news…

Geraldine Heaney, Angela James and Cammie Granato made women’s hockey history on Thursday. The trio of pioneers became the first women players inducted into the International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame, along with former superstar Mario Lemieux, Russian great Igor Larionov and the first French player ever to skate in the NHL, Philippe Bozon.
