Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn is off to Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics as a member of the Canadian hockey team. While this might be an exciting once in a lifetime type of trip, Benn is calling it strictly business.

“It’s pretty much all business for me,” Benn said, via the Dallas Morning News. “There’s really only one goal that I have in mind, and that’s bringing back the gold. For me, I don’t have to worry about anything. I can just focus on hockey, doing what I have to do and that’s winning hockey games and trying to get the job done.”

He did back off those comments and express some excitement.

“I’m obviously very excited to get over there and just be part of the whole Olympics in general,” Benn said. “To put on this jersey and represent your country in such a big event, it means a lot. For a Canadian to represent your country in hockey, it’s pretty special and it definitely means a lot to me.”
