EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Milan Lucic received a call from Team Canada on Tuesday morning, but it wasn’t the call he was hoping to get. The winger, who had been invited to the Team Canada orientation camp in Calgary in August, would not be invited to the Olympic team for the Games in Sochi, Russia.
“Obviously it’s something that you were kind of looking forward to and wanted to be a part of,” Lucic said. “It’s, I guess you can say, disappointing when you’re not named to the team. In saying that, you’re happy for all the guys in the room here that have been named to be Olympians and represent their country.”
