SOCHI - Millionaire NHL players won’t exactly be living in the lap of luxury when they arrive in Sochi Sunday for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
Canada’s players, including superstars like Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos and Jonathan Toews, will stay in the athletes’ village with the other members of the Canadian contingent.
On a tour of the village Tuesday, media were shown a room with three single beds in it, which will be shared by three members of Team Canada.
Canada’s chef de mission for Sochi 2014, Steve Podborski, said this is the way the players wanted it.
“No special treatment,” Podborski said. “One of the things that we discovered in our exit interviews following Vancouver is that the athletes want to be part of a team. That includes the hockey players.
