St. John's guard Felix Balamou has been deemed ineligible for game competition due to an NCAA violation. The University is seeking reinstatement and Balamou is permitted to practice with the team during this process.

"We understand Felix's disappointment and we are here to support him," St. John's general counsel and interim athletic director Joseph Oliva, Esq. said in a school-released statement. "St. John's will work in concert with the NCAA through the reinstatement process."

Balamou has appeared in 54 games in his three seasons with the Red Storm. The Conakry, Guinea, native has career averages of 1.6 points and 1.1 rebounds playing 9.1 minutes per game. In 2014-15, Balamou played in 22 games, including 12 Big East appearances, and made three starts. He averaged 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds in conference play last season.

Yesterday, Martin Brodeur told French-Canadian journliast Renaud Lavoie that although Brodeur wouldn't pick himself for Team Canada, he would go to next February's Sochi Olympics if asked -- even as a third-string goalie. That got me to thinking, which Devils are destined to play for flag and country in a year's time? So, after looking at the Devils' current roster, here's an extremely early roundup of players I think will, could or won't get the call next year. Again, this is all my random guessing based on players I think have a shot. Here goes.

Definitely Sochi bound: Patrik Elias (Czech Republic), Ilya Kovalchuk (Russia), Anton Volchenkov (Russia)

As long as they keep this up: David Clarkson (Canada), Andy Greene (U.S.)
