    Not unless they play... or at least that's what was said when the taxi squad concept was released.

    What about players who play, but then get injured and have to be replaced? (like Hasek, Elias, Frolov, and Ohlund).

    I would guess yes since they were on the team, and especially given that they each saw some game action.

    Yeah, I was wondering if everyone who sees game action gets medals myself. I'd heard they have a limited number.....

    I would assume taxi squad members would not get medals as they would not be suited up. I remember in 2002 Belfour dressed up as the back up to Brodeur against the Germans so that if/when Canada won gold, he would get a medal as well. So if Belfour wouldn't have gotten a medal even though he was on the real team, I would say the taxi squad members get no medals

    FYI: Coaches don't get medals either. Quinn, Gretzky, and company only got the gold medal rings from Hockey Canada

    Staal is getting an Order of Canada Medal for not calling out Gretzky & Company for leaving him off the team.
