An interesting article from The Hockey News on the plight of the Korean hockey program and its new non-Korean friends.
When it first came out that Korea would be granted a slot in the men's hockey tournament for the Olympics I tried to get in contact to someone known to be associated with the team via email.
My pitch was simple:
I'm from Minnesota. I'm a goalie. Sure, I'd be a 44-year old rookie in 2018, but you're Korea. How many goalies do you really have?
Now, I didn't hear back from anyone, but that means I still have a chance, right?
