It’s time? IT’S TIME.


“Good evening. You’re first-round matchup between Canada and Switzerland, live from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C.,” Comtois belted out before the squad hit the ice for their second game of the preliminary round.

To add to the in-tunnel spectacle, a pair of Spokane Chiefs teammates, Jaret Anderson-Dolan and Ty Smith, threw down an intense game of rock-paper-scissors before Comtois herded the squad onto the ice.

Glorious.
