    Ravi wasn't at the camp. Maybe he's retired but there's not been an official announcement. BC?

    I feel the Baath brothers have been unfairly blackballed by FHC...truely a dissapointment that young players throughout canada/the world won't be given a chance to watch these "Sedins" of the hockey world work their magic.

    Ravi has indeed retired. I believe he announced his intention to retire after the Olympics. He has returned to a player/coach for the Victoria Selects and was coaching for India Club in the Vancouver Spring League. He was coaching at the U14 Boys Clubs this past weekend in fact.

    Isn't it nice when an athlete contributes back to the game? Mind you, Ravi has always been very conscious of the importance of giving back to the community.

    I may be wrong, but there's a Ian Smyth that I've played against.

    He's an Aussie, but I think with a Canadian back ground. May have been introduced by Guesty.

    If it's the same guy he's played u/16 & JWC for Aus with a hand full of Aussie Senior game. Was in AIS & Aus Dev Squad a few years back

    He's a short fellow that playing in the midfield
