This will be the second Olympic appearance for Greiss. He played for team Germany at the 2006 Olympics where he was the youngest goaltender (20) in the tournament. His only appearance in 2006 was a 5-1 loss to Canada where he made 35 saves on 40 shots.
Greiss also represented Germany at the 2004 (Group B), 2005 and 2006 (Group B) World Junior Championships.
I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
