On Friday, the NHL announced its players would be participating in the Olympics. Not since 2014 has this happened, which would showcase some of the league's best and boldest. That's right! Get ready to see Connor McDavid chomping on some black licorice in Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo in 2026! You might even see some Vegas Golden Knights there!

Still, this is a cool idea that should go over well in the hockey community. Who doesn't want to see Auston Matthews and crew take on a Swedish army of hockey players? Returning to the Olympics and rooting for your favorite country brings the feels and the childhood memories a' floodin' back.

Speaking of the Olympics, which Golden Knights could appear in 2026? There's a laundry list of players that could make the cut. Get your pizza and Risotto alla Milanese ready, Las Vegas! We're going on an Italian trip with the Vegas Golden Knights (no, we're not heading to Park MGM)!
