Playing for Canada for the fifth time in his career -- won a gold medal at the 2003 World Championship and a silver at the 2005 tournament.
Began the 2003 tournament on a line with Dany Heatley and Daniel Briere, but played the final two games with Shawn Horcoff and Kyle Calder, including his best game of the tournament, a semi-final win over the Czechs.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold.
