Two Brothers vs. The World

Matthew and Brady Tkachuk are the most famous sibling duo in the NHL since the Sedin twins, and now, they've got their sights set on playing together — internationally, at least.
During a recent appearance on the Cam & Stick podcast, Matthew publicly voiced his desire to have NHLers return to the Olympics, particularly given the huge pool of talent Team USA would currently have to work with.

A Return to Best-On-Best

An NHL return to the Olympics would see Matthew not only team up with younger brother Brady, but fellow youth international teammate/fellow 2016 draft pick Auston Matthews. Tkachuk had this to say about the idea of playing in the Olympics:
"There's so many great Americans in the league now, it's a shame that we haven't had a chance to show off, It's crazy that, you know, Auston (Matthews) and (Nathan) MacKinnon and (Connor) McDavid, these guys haven't played in one (Olympics). It's sad.

I think that every single player who could be in a position to play is beside themselves that there hasn't been one. My number one dream is to win the Stanley Cup, my number two dream is to win a gold medal with my brother for the USA.»

The topic of the NHL in the Winter Olympics — the league hasn't sent players there since Sochi 2014 — has been a contentious one in recent years, particularly for commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL team owners who fear risking injury for players, as well as COVID concerns for the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. They are, however, expected to send players to the 2026 winter games, jointly hosted by Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo in Italy.
