Legends of Team Canada: Greg Johnson
One of the late add-ons to Team Canada's 1994 Olympic was NHLer Greg Johnson.
Johnson was a NHL rookie in the 1993-94 season, but he was no stranger to the Canadian national team. After graduating from the University of North Dakota in 1993 he joined the Nats for the remainder of their season plus the World Championships and impressed.
Johnson signed on with the Red Wings in 1993-94 and immediately made the team, though as the season progressed he played more of a minor role as an apprenticing rookie. Meanwhile the national team continued calling the Red Wings to see if they would release him for the Olympics. Feeling it was a good chance for Johnson to get some big minutes of development time, the Wings let Johnson rejoin the Nats a few weeks ahead of the Olympics.
