Vancouver Canucks' Dan Hamhuis's first Olympic Games

The Vancouver Canucks' Dan Hamhuis may be playing his first Olympic Games in Sochi, but he has already represented Canada in four world championships​.

"It never gets old, putting on that Canadian jersey. It comes with a lot of responsibility too. We've got a very proud hockey nation that wants to win," says Hamhuis.

The Smithers native is a proud British Columbian, but says, "it's about the whole country coming together."
