CALGARY, Alta. – On the eve of its opening game at the Karjala Cup, Hockey Canada has announced that Canada’s National Men’s Team has added new resources and expertise to its staff.

Adam Foote (Whitby, Ont.) has joined the National Men’s Team staff as a player development consultant. Foote, who retired as a player in 2011, held a similar role with the Colorado Avalanche over the last four seasons. As a player, the Stanley Cup champion represented Canada in short-term, international competition at three Olympic Games, winning gold in 2002, and two World Cups.

Morey Gare (Nelson, B.C.), who provided input into the player selections for the Karjala Cup, officially joins the team as scout. Gare, who has held coaching and general manager positions with NCAA, CJHL and AHL teams, spent 13 seasons in scouting roles with the Edmonton Oilers.

Dr. Stephen Norris (Cochrane, Alta.) has been added to the staff roster as the team’s physical performance consultant. Norris, a renowned sport scientist, is no stranger to Hockey Canada, having consulted with the organization on all aspects of the game – from the grassroots level through athlete development and the national team programs. He played a key role as consultant to Own the Podium in the five years prior to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and was the director of sport physiology and strategic planning at the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary from 1995 to 2010.

In late July, Hockey Canada unveiled its plan for Canada’s National Men’s Team for the 2017-18 season, including its full management and coaching staff, as well as an extended schedule that allows for multiple opportunities for team staff to bring together Olympic hopefuls as part of the evaluation process.
