Cale Makar has reportedly turned down an invite to the Olympics. More

UMass hockey defenseman and Colorado Avalanche prospect Cale Makar might have won gold at the 2018 IIHL World Junior Championship with Team Canada, but the skilled defenseman is reportedly not going to go for Olympic gold in Pyeongchang, South Korea. He recorded three goals and five assists in eight games, and clearly impressed the higher ups from the senior national team with his play. He showed an uncanny ability to walk the blue line and find open shooting lanes from the point, and established himself as a power-play specialist for a Canadian side that tore it up with the man advantage until it met a formidable Sweden penalty kill in the gold medal game.

So Makar may have been the youngest player on the roster had he accepted the invitation, but he turned down Hockey Canada's advances.

Canada won gold medals in Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014 with teams full of National Hockey League stars.

The Warriors were led by Curry's 30 points, while Kevin Durant added 29 points and Klay Thompson scored 22 points . He played his air guitar down the floor and then eliminated any space between him and the world's greatest player.

The fourth overall pick by the Colorado Avalanche last summer, Makar is now enrolled at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

Canada's official roster for the Games is set to be announced Thursday.
