TEAM CANADA ‘72 PLAYERS THRILLED BY INDUCTION Attention: Sports Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 26, 2005) - Statement by Rod Seiling, Team Canada '72 Player Committee Chair:

Team Canada '72 players are thrilled and grateful for the honour Canada's Sports Hall of Fame has bestowed on them with the team's upcoming induction into the Hall.

We want to thank both the Selection Committee and the Board of Governors of the Hall for this recognition. We also want to congratulate the other inductees.

Our team has always taken great pride in its achievements, not just for the momentous win over the Soviets in 1972, but also for being able to defend Canada's reputation as the preeminent hockey country in the world.

We are looking forward to the November 2, 2005 induction ceremony. We appreciate the recognition, and are delighted to share this honour with all Canadians who continue to have such fond memories of our team and its accomplishments.
