Norway Olympic Hockey Team 2014: Full 25-Man Roster, Projected Lines, Pairings

Norway isn't known for producing high-end hockey players, but the team has qualified for two consecutive Olympics and is piecing together a program that is capable of surprising other nations if they aren't paying attention or are looking beyond Norway on the schedule.

We all know that the "fifth line" for Canada could arguably take over for the top line for Norway, but don't sleep on this deep group of quick and stingy wingers and defensemen.

While the team doesn't posses the same kind of name recognition as other nations, it does have familiarity going for it. A lot of these players have spent considerable amount of time playing next to one another, which could give them an advantage once the Olympics roll around.

They'll need all the help they can get with tough matchups against Canada and Finland to open the tournament.
