Unknown Canadians: Marc-André Gragnani

Ah, good ol' Marc-André Gragnani. The skilled defenseman of some good promise with the Buffalo Sabres. He was a bit of a throw-in in the Zack Kassian for Cody Hodgson trade with Vancouver. He quickly disappeared, bouncing around the minors and Europe with very brief appearances with Carolina and San Jose.

How I remember you well, Marc-André Gragnani. Mostly because I could never pronounce your last name. I really don't know why. Somehow it is like kryptonite to me.

But that's okay because unless there is a change in plans (yeah, right) I am not going to be doing any play-by-play for any national television networks. Marc-André Gragnani can take that off of his list of pressures as he goes to Pyeongchang.

Gragnani has been playing very well with Minsk of the KHL this season. He is one of the higher scoring defenseman and is said to really control the pace of the game on the bigger ice.
