With the NHL taking a two-week break and releasing its players to their National teams, it was Canada's greatest hope for Olympic Hockey Gold since their 1952 championship, 36 years in the past. Despite putting together a star-studded roster of superstars, they could not overcome Dominik Hasek's semi-final mastery, and Canada would have to wait another four years for Olympic redemption.
This amazing, rare poster, features the entire 1998 squad in all its glory, displaying their sharp Team Canada uniforms on their way to Nagano, Japan and the Winter Olympic Games. A full listing of the legendary superstars appearing here reads below - how did these guys not win a medal? Note: this poster is now out-of-print; limited quantity remains in our warehouse.
