Five former KC Blades in Olympic tourney
The Olympic Hockey Tournament is the best hockey tournament in the world. It is akin to the World Cup of Soccer, which is coming this summer.
Five former Kansas City Blades are playing in this year's Olympic Tournament.
Latvia -- Arturs Irbe, Viktors Ignatjevs, Sandis Ozolinsh
Italy -- Jason Cirone
Russia -- Viktor Kozlov
The Blades history is slowly fading. The Sharks roster is completely void of former Blades.
The Sharks do, however, have headshots of every single player that ever put on a Blades roster. It's cool to go to the Shark tank and see photos of J.F. Quintin, Gary Emmons, Kenny Hammond, Jaroslov Otevrel and so many other Blades we loved watching.
