The men's hockey tournament of the 2014 Winter Olympics proved decidedly less fruitful for the Carolina Hurricanes than the 2010 competition as only Tuomo Ruutu returned from Sochi to Raleigh with a medal.
For Justin Faulk (USA), Andrej Sekera (Slovakia) and Alexander Semin (Russia), the Olympics ended in disappointment as each of their respective nations fell well short of expectations and failed to medal.
The 'Canes can take pride in Ruutu's performance, however, as he—after an underwhelming NHL campaign—blossomed in a large role for Finland and earned a highly deserving and very appreciated bronze medal.
How did each Hurricanes Olympian fare individually in Sochi? Statistics, analysis and grades for each of the team's four participants fall on the coming slides.
