Will be playing for Canada for the sixth time in his career -- won a gold medal at the 2007 World Championship; and silver medals at the 2008 and 2005 World Championships as well as the 2002 World Junior Championship.
Was the youngest player on the 2006 Canadian Olympic team (21).
Was named MVP of the 2007 World Championship, playing on a Canadian line that featured Shane Doan and Matthew Lombardi and combined to score 17 of the team's 41 goals in the tournament. Scored one of the great goals in Canadian hockey history in the gold medal game against Finland. With the Finns pressing for the tying goal late in the third period, trailing by a 3-2 score, Nash clinched the contest with a great one-handed deke of goalie Kari Lehtonen while defenseman Pekka Saravo tried to haul him down.
Was also a member of tournament All-Star Team in 2008.
Played on Canada's top line at the 2005 World Championship with Joe Thornton and Simon Gagne.
I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
