UFA, RUSSIA - Never touched a handgun, let alone laid eyes on one.

That changed on Thursday morning after a group of reporters were frustrated in an attempt to hail a taxi at the hotel to take us to Canada’s practice at the Ufa Arena.

A volunteer at the 2013 World Junior Championship asked a plainclothes police officer, who was relaxing in the hotel lobby, if he would mind giving us a lift to the rink.
