Now and Then (1972-2016): Team Canada Leaders
The upcoming semifinal Canada vs. Russia brings back good hockey memories about the 1972 Summit Series.

Celebrating the 44th Anniversary of the series, here is a quick look at the leaders of Team Canada in September 1972 and in September 2016- Phil Esposito and Sydney Crosby.
