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.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
