VETERAN VALILA

Canada's women's hockey team will be taking on a Hall of Famer when they meet Finland in round-robin play on Tuesday. At 44, forward Riikka Valila is the oldest player to ever take the ice in Olympic women's hockey. Inducted into the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010, the mother of three says she plans to play in the 2019 world championships in her home country.

SHORT-TRACK SWAN SONG

Marianne St-Gelais will try to reach the podium in the women's 500-metre short-track final. It would be especially satisfying for the skater from Saint-Félicien, Que., who failed to win any individual medals at the Sochi Games four years ago. St-Gelais and her fiancé Charles Hamelin, a fourtime Olympic-medal winner, have said this will be their final Olympics. They're ready to start a family and the next chapter of their lives.

MIXED RESULTS

The first-ever Olympic medals in doubles curling will be handed out on Tuesday and Canadians John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes will be in the mix. The duo have both been on top of the Olympic podium before in the traditional men's and women's events, but they had no experience as a doubles team until the qualifying tournament in January. After opening the competition with a loss, the pair found their groove and cruised through the rest of the round robin.

COMEBACK KID

Since Denny Morrison last skated on Olympic ice, he has overcome serious injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident and recovered from a stroke. The seemingly indestructible 32-year-old skater from Fort St. John, B.C., will make his Pyeongchang debut on Tuesday in the men's 1,500 metres. Canadians will remember Morrison from the Sochi Games four years ago when he won a silver in the 1,000 metres after teammate Gilmore Junio gave up his spot to Morrison, who had fallen at the team trials.

SPRINT TO THE FINISH

Cross-country skier Alex Harvey is one of Canada's busiest athletes in Pyeongchang with six events on his schedule. On Tuesday, he'll suit up for the men's sprint, his second race of the Games. Canada has never won an Olympic medal in men's cross-country and the racer from St-Ferréol-les-Neiges, Que., is well positioned to end that drought in Pyeongchang.

Harvey won a world title in the 50,000 metres last year.
