MSU Olympians

Eight former Spartans have had the honor of wearing their country's colors in the Olympic Games. MSU's most recent honoree was Dwayne Norris, who played for Canada and earned a silver medal in the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. Norwegian Geir Hoff also skated in the 1994 Olympics, marking the third Games where two Spartans have been in the hockey competition. Hoff and Kevin Miller (U.S.) played in 1988 while Gene Grazia and Weldon Olson earned gold medals in 1960 for the U.S. Olson (1956, silver) and Hoff are the only two Spartans to skate in two Olympics. Other Olympians include: Jason Woolley (Canada, 1992), Gary Haight (USA, 1984) and Doug Volmar (USA, 1968). In addition, Bryan Smolinski (U.S.) and Rod Brind'Amour (Canada) played in this year's World Cup.
