Weber named to Team Canada for 2014 Winter Olympics

Sicamous’ Shea Weber will be gunning for gold once again as a member of Canada’s men’s Olympic hockey team.

The Olympic dream-team that will take the ice for the 2014 Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia was named last week. It includes d-men Weber of the Nashville Predators, Winnipeg’s Duncan Keith (Chicago Blackhawks) and London, Ont. native Drew Doughty (LA Kings), who contributed to Team Canada’s gold-medal win during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. In the 2010 series, Weber was second among defencemen for scoring, potting two goals and earning four assists. One of those goals made headlines as it was considered the hardest slapshot during the games. The puck went in and through Germany’s net; the shot was so fast that neither the players or referees initially realized it happened.

Weber has also represented Canada in the IIHF World Junior Championships. He helped the team take gold in 2005 and 2007, and in 2009 when they took silver.
