It’s a big week in Canada, as prospective members of the 2010 Olympic team are gatheing in Calgary for an orientation camp. The Kings’ Drew Doughty and Ryan Smyth are present, and while Doughty’s youth and relative inexperience probably make him a longshot for the 2010 team, he’s clearly happy to even be in the discussion.
After the first day of camp, Doughty talked to reporters about the call he got from Team Canada executive director Steve Yzerman, informing him of his selection to the camp.
“I saved his message so I could hear it over again, but I dropped my phone in the water and now the phone doesn’t work,” Doughty said. “I can’t hear what he said. Really disappointing.”
