How many of these names do you recognize?

Team Canada's men's hockey team roster is set for the Olympics next month in Pyeongchang, South Korea and it isn't exactly full of house hold names. 

The roster is largely made up of former NHL players, with some names you may recognize such as Mason Raymond, Chris Kelly, Derek Roy, Ben Scrivens and Gilbert Brule.

While the players may not be on Hockey Night in Canada anytime soon, every member of the team does play professionally with the majority playing for teams in Russia's KHL.

Former Vancouver Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins will be Team Canada's bench boss when the team takes the ice in South Korea. 

Team Canada has won the gold in men's hockey three of the last four Olympics, including Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014. 

But let's be real, NHL players or not, Canadians from coast to coast will be excited to watch Team Canada go for gold at the 2018 Olympics.

For now, let's relive Canada's hockey glory at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.
