Morrow tired, but excited

FRISCO -- Stars captain Brenden Morrow admitted that he didn't sleep much on Tuesday night as he contemplated whether he'd make the Team Canada squad for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

"I was a bubble guy and just wondering if I would make it or not and trying to visualize the games and what would happen in Vancouver," Morrow said. "I just had lots of things going through my head. The mice were running around and I couldn't go to sleep."

Morrow found out about 20 minutes before he went on the ice for practice Wednesday morning. Former Stars general manager Doug Armstrong, an associate director to Steve Yzerman in putting together the Team Canada roster, called Morrow to give him the news.

Morrow said he feels fortunate that he gets to play on the Olympic team in Canada with Vancouver as the host.

"I played in the World Juniors in Winnipeg," said Morrow, referring to the first time he represented his country in an international event in 2002. "It was a big home crowd. They were waving the white towels. There was a pretty good buzz in the arena. I'm sure it will be the same way in Vancouver. It's going to be a real exciting time."
