Streit, captain for Switzerland at the 2006 Olympics, will be competing in his third Olympic Games -- the Swiss saw their greatest success under his captaincy in 2006 finishing sixth. Switzerland had two upsets in 2006, including a 2-0 shutout victory over Canada where Streit picked up one assist and a 3-2 victory over the Czech Republic where he scored the winning goal.
He has represented his country in 15 international tournaments, including an impressive run of 10 consecutive World Championships from 1998-2007.
I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
