Canada had gone on to capture numerous international titles since the 1972 Summit Series: Canada Cups, world championships, world junior championships and men's and women's Olympic gold medals. With each victory came new heroes. Some of those heroes became legends.
Legends of Team Canada honours the stars of Team Canada over the years. We remember the heroics of Paul Henderson and leadership of Phil Esposito in the 1972 Summit Series. We recapture the magic between Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux in the 1987 Canada Cup, and pay homage to other Canada Cup legends like Bobby Orr, Darryl Sittler, Paul Coffey, John Tonelli and Mark Messier. We honour World Champions like Ryan Smyth and Bill Ranford. We cherish Olympic glories supplied by the likes of Joe Sakic, Hayley Wickenheiser and Jayna Hefford.
More than 30 Legends of Team Canada are individually profiled. We also tribute lesser known players who were devoted to Team Canada over the years. We thank pre-1972 amateurs who captured world and Olympic titles. We remember the modern men's and women's national teams. And just for fun we look at the list of players who have played for Team Canada even though they were born in another country. And we take a look at the players who will one day soon be included as a legend of Team Canada.
