Ehrhoff will not have to travel far in order to take part in the 2010 Vancouver Olympic games as he will be one of seven Vancouver Canucks playing at their home building. This will be his third Olympic appearance having played in 2002 and 2006. In 2002, he was the youngest player in the tournament (19).
In 2002, he took part in the World Junior Championships (Group B) where he led the tournament in scoring and earned the Top Defenseman award for the second straight year. He also played in the 2002 World Championships -- completing the rare accomplishment of playing in the World Junior Championships, the World Championship and the Olympics all in the same year (2002).
