The dream never quite dies out!

There's an interesting story from the Canoe website, about one of Team Canada's unheralded forwards.

Glen Metropolit sits on the Team Canada roster at the World Hockey Championships, seeing spot duty from time to time as the 13th forward. He most recently saw duty on the penalty kill and managed to gain two assists in Canada's 11-0 rout of Latvia last week.

He's had a few cups of coffee in the NHL and left North America for the European experience a few years ago, however, he's hoping to make the return trip to the NHL for next year.

The story of how he got to Europe, his frustrations with the NHL of a few years ago and his hopes that at age 31 he will get one more shot at the big show makes for interesting reading.
