“obviously i wanted to get that gold medal for all canadians, but you know… we just fell a bit short, but i think all canadians were proud of us and to lose a gold medal game in the shootout, i mean… it could go either way. representing canada is one of the coolest things i’ve ever done, and i’ll forever remember putting on the canadian flag.”
