Bit of a random selection for a torchbearer but pretty cool.

Hey, who'd you rather see, a multi medal winning Olympian who came back to his profession after beating cancer or Will I Am? Very Happy

Good for Saku.

I'd rather see a Brit do it. If you really wanted to get a hockey player to carry it, Tony Hand would have been a good shout.

Yeah can't say I understand the reasoning behind picking a Finnish hockey player who plays in California especially when his sport is to do with the winter olympics not summer!

Still at least ice hockey gets some kind of recognition I suppose?

Granted it is a little left field. I'm actually disappointed that you're not down in Hillingdon representing me and cheering him on today, Homer! Wink

Probably something along the lines of Bob Koivu....who the hell is he? (judging by the winter olympic commentators ability to say hockey names!)

So there you go...Saku is member of the International Olympic Committee's Athletes' Commission.

Read the comments of the story. Not often Jack the Ripper gets a mention on nhl.com....
