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.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
