Marc Methot’s efforts with the Ottawa Senators this season haven’t gone unnoticed.

While Ottawa-born Methot might be a longshot if the NHL does confirm its participation in the Sochi Olympics, as the Sun reported two weeks ago the Senators defenceman is certainly on Team Canada GM Steve Yzerman’s radar screen.

If all the issues between the NHL, NHLPA, International Ice Hockey Federation and the International Olympic Committee can be resolved, then Methot has a chance to be invited to Canada’s evaluation camp this summer in Calgary.
