Three former Capitals make Canadian Olympic team after IIHF accidentally posts roster day early
The IIHF confirmed in mid-January that players under NHL contract will not be permitted to play in the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics. Due to that, nations have been scouring minor leagues and other professional leagues from around the world to fill their rosters.
Canada planned to announce their roster on January 25. But, Monday, the IIHF leaked it a day early.
Canada chose three former Capitals to its team.
