Within the last couple of days, two members of the men's indoor national team have retired. Brock Davidiuk and Alexandre Gaumont Casias ended their careers this month after 12 and 9 year careers respectively.  From the Volleyball Canada press releases:

Gaumont Casias helped Team Canada qualify for the 2010 World Championship in Italy at the 2010 NORCECA World Championship Qualification tournament in 2009.
He returned to the Canadian lineup during a European Tour in Estonia and helped the Canadian team to a first place finish at the event following a long absence that saw him miss both the 2011 Pan Am Cup and first leg of World League qualification due to injuries.

Davidiuk, first wore the Maple Leaf in 2002 as a member of the Junior National Team that won gold at the 2002 NORCECA Junior Championship in Kelowna, BC. The following year, he returned to selection camp and was once again named to Junior National Team roster that finished 9th at the 2003 World Junior Championship in Iran.

I wish both Brock and Alexandre the best of luck with their future endeavors and thank them for their years of service to our national team.
