FOUR SABRES HEADED TO WINTER OLYMPICS
The 2014 Winter Olympics are just over a month away in Sochi, Russia, and four Sabres will be representing their respective countries in the much-anticipated hockey competition.

The 2014 Winter Olympics are just over a month away in Sochi, Russia, and four Sabres will be representing their respective countries in the much-anticipated hockey competition.

Goaltender Jhonas Enroth and defenseman Henrik Tallinder were today named to the roster for Sweden, and forward Zemgus Girgensons has been selected to play for Latvia. Sabres’ interim coach Ted Nolan will also be behind the bench for Latvia.

The trio of players joins Ryan Miller, who was introduced as a member of Team USA on New Year’s Day following the Winter Classic in Michigan.

This will be Enroth’s first Olympic appearance, after leading Sweden to a gold medal at last spring’s World Championship. Enroth has also represented Sweden at a pair of World Junior Championships in 2007 and 2008.
