We reported earlier today that Montreal Canadiens scout and former NHL goaltender Sean Burke has been named as the general manager for Team Canada at the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Only a few hours after the announcement, Burke has already started to talk about a possible lineup for his team. In an interview with TSN1050, he mentioned two very popular names who could very well be in the lineup next year, if they do not get offers from any NHL teams:
Shane Doan and Jarome Iginla. Two players who dressed up in more than 1,500 NHL games between 1995 and 2017. Could their experience be a great asset for head coach Willie Desjardins?
Iginla scored 625 goals and 675 assists for 1300 points in exactly 1,554 games with the Calgary Flames, Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings. The 40-year-old winger is still without a contract for next season.
Doan has played his 1,540 games with the organization that drafted him seventh overall back in 1995. He amassed 402 goals and 570 assists for 972 points.
