Best Answer

No.

Canada did not participate in Ice Hockey at the 1972 Winter Games in Sapporo or the 1976 Winter Games in Innsbruck in protest over the use of professional players by some of the other countries. Canada petitioned the International Olympic Committee to be allowed to use paid players from the National Hockey League since other countries were using players that were paid by their government to play. The petition was denied and Canada refused to send ice hockey teams to the 1972 and 1976 Games.
