See also

According to CBC Sports on Thursday, Team Canada hockey forward John Tavares of the New York Islanders injured his leg in Canada's 2-1 quarterfinal victory over Latvia on Wednesday and will be out for the rest of the Olympic tournament.

Now with Tavares injured, we know who the forwards Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock will have to dress in Canada's semi-final game against the United States. They will be Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks, Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, Jeff Carter of the Los Angeles Kings, Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche, Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars, Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Rick Nash of the New York Rangers and Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks.

To date, Sharp, St. Louis, and Duchene have been benched at times throughout the Olympic hockey tournament.

Even though Canada is in the semi-finals, the forwards have struggled mightily to score goals. They have six goals in four games, and Carter has three. That means Crosby, Perry, and Nash who have all won the Rocket Richard Trophy (for leading the NHL in regular season goals in one season) have zero goals combined.
