    Summary

    In 2010, the best athletes in the world gathered in Vancouver for the Games of the thirty-first Olympiad.

To this end, Canada assembled a team of superstars, the best and brightest in the NHL, led by Sidney Crosby. On the shoulders of that team they placed the hopes of the nation.

    Summary

    “Can I come to Russia with you?”

    Zhenya’s brain fritzes out for a second. “Sorry?” he asks, thinking he’s misheard.

    Years of pining can do that to a person -- make you believe that the object of your affections wants something more than they really do. Sid’s gone bright pink and is staring at the floor, so maybe it’s not pining-induced insanity. Sanja will be pleased.

    Summary


    “What’s your name?” Mitch questions, glancing up him.

    “Auston, with an ‘o,’” the guy mutters in a clipped tone, his eyes still locked on the screen on his iPhone.

    “Auston with an ‘o,’” Mitch softly parrots, nodding to himself.

    And Mitch can’t really be held accountable for the way his hands take offence to the guy’s blatant dismissal, scrawling his name onto the side of the cup with more vigor than necessarily required.

    Oustin.

    Objectively, it’s close enough.
