Olympic Hockey is almost upon us. Rosters freeze on Friday afternoon, and the first preliminary games begin on Feb. 12.
Three Stars players were selected by their respective teams, and here’s when and where you can catch a glimpse of them in action when you aren’t cheering on the U.S. team.
*All games are listed in central time
*All games can also be streamed online at NBCOlympics.com. You’ll need a cable provider though to log-in.
Kari Lehtonen – Finland
Feb. 13 – Finland vs. Austria, 2 a.m. – NBCSN
Feb. 14 – Finland vs. Norway, 11 a.m. – MSNBC
Feb. 16 – Finland vs. Canada, 11 a.m. – USA Network
Who knows right now just how much of Lehtonen we might see in the Olympics. Finland is stacked at the goalie position with Antti Niemi, Tuukka Rask and Lehtonen all on the team. Each of them could play at some point.
Lehtonen has been the best in the past two weeks but Rask is the best overall goalie on the team. It’s all up to the whims of coach Erkka Westerlund.no comments
