Silver Nuggets: Fisher doesn't make Canada, six Senators heading to Olympics

New, comments

Today's Ottawa Senators headlines feature a whole whack of Olympics news items, plus some other stuff. Here goes:

  • Starting with the Vancouver Olympics news: Mike Fisher wasn't selected for Team Canada, despite all the high hopes in Ottawa. (SBNHockey)
  • On the other hand, Kaspars Daugavins made the Latvian national team. (From The Rink)
  • While Filip Kuba and Milan Michalek will be suiting up for the Czech Republic. (CP)
  • And Jarkko Ruutu will suit up for Finland. (CBC)
  • With those four, plus Daniel Alfredsson and Anton Volchenkov playing for their respective squads, I nailed all predictions a month ago. Okay, maybe not that amazing, but still, not bad.
  • On to tonight's game: Ryan Keller was re-assigned to Binghamton because Nick Foligno is set to return from his injury. Erik Karlsson remains scratched, and Pascal Leclaire starts in goal. (Twitter)
  • In the World Juniors, Jared Cowen has an assist now, and on the Swedish team Jakob Silfverberg has two points (1G, 1A), and Andre Petersson is lighting it up with 4G and 2A in 3GP.
  • Down in Binghamton, Keller and Martin St. Pierre were selected for the AHL All-Star Game. I will note, two forwards, both off-season acquisitions by Bryan Murray. (Sharp)
  • UPDATE: And the B-Sens recalled CHRIS HOLT!, although it's unclear how they're going to make room for him with Andy Chiodo and Mike Brodeur both still in the lineup. (Sharp)
  • UPDATE: Back to the Olympics: Strange and worth noting that former Senator Christoph Schubert has apparently been left off the German team. (FTR)
