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.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
