Editors and broadcasters across the country selected Canada's men's hockey team as the Canadian Press team of the year by an overwhelming margin.

The hockey team successfully defended its Olympic hockey gold medal in Sochi, Russia at the 2014 Olympics and drew nearly two-thirds of the 90 votes cast. Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse who also defended their bobsleigh gold medal from the 2010 Winter Olympics by winning again in Sochi were a distant second with 11 percent of the vote, followed by the Canadian women's hockey team, who likewise were able to secure gold at the Olympics again.
