Before making it to the NHL, Burrows also enjoyed a prolific ball hockey career, competing in national and international tournaments in the summers.In 2005, he was named the International Ball Hockey Player of the Year. He has also been inducted into the Canadian and International Ball Hockey Halls of Fame.
Not sure if it was posted yet, but Forsberg dives in with his opinion of tomorrow's refs. All I can say is, the 2 teams I wanted fighting for gold are there. I believe it's a conflict of interest to have any refs from the representing countries, or their bitter rivals officiating the game. They should be all from different countries. I don't want there to be any question that the gold medal game was called fair and 100% down the middle.
Side note: gold medal game has 4 guys born in Winnipeg playing!!! Canada: Toews, Sharp, Keith. Sweden: Alex Steen. Take that world
"What a f___ing joke!" the seven-time All-Star said to Swedish reporters, calling the selection of officials Kelly Sutherland, Brad Meier, Greg Devorski and Derek Amell "comedy at its highest level."
I was afraid it was his announcement that he was coming out of retirement. Now that would be "comedy at it's highest level".
Better motivation would come from a letter written by Sweden's Women's Olympic hockey team.
