Hockey Canada to name men's Olympic, Paralympic captains Sunday
Will announce alternate captains as well via press release
Canadian hockey fans are about to find out who will be wearing the 'C' for Team Canada at the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
Hockey Canada revealed it will announce its captains and alternate captains for both Games via press release at approximately 11 a.m. ET Sunday morning.
The men's Olympic squad will have a new face as defenceman Scott Niedermayer — now retired — led them to gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
Canada announced its roster earlier this month, which sparked plenty of debate. Among the notable exclusions from the squad were Tampa Bay Lightning sniper Martin St. Louis and Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars.
Hockey Canada named its Paralympic sledge hockey team earlier on Saturday, which included 16 returning members from the 2013 world championship team.
Canada, in Group B along with Norway, Austria and Finland, kicks off its Olympic campaign on Feb. 13 against Norway.
