Two former Condors — goaltender Ben Scrivens and forward Rob Klinkhammer — will be representing Team Canada in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The lack of NHL participation in the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, opened the door for a host of former NHLers now plying their trade in European leagues.
Scrivens played 10 games for the Condors in the 2015-16 season before being traded by Edmonton to Montreal. He is currently playing in the KHL, Russia’s top league.
Scrivens played 144 NHL games for four different teams and is the NHL record-holder for saves in a shutout, stopping 59 shots for the Oilers in a win over San Jose on Jan. 30, 2104.
Klinkhammer played 27 games for the Condors in the second half of the 2105-16 season, putting up 24 points. Like Scrivens, he is playing in the KHL. Klinkhammer played 193 NHL games for five different teams over seven seasons.
