Will be playing for his country for the fourth time in his career -- won gold medals for Canada at the 2007 World Championship and 2005 World Junior Championship and a silver medal at the 2009 World Championship.
Played on one of the all-time great Canadian teams at the 2005 World Junior Championship -- along with fellow 2010 Olympians Sidney Crosby, Brent Seabrook, Patrice Bergeron, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Mike Richards.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
