Canadians and notables to watch:

  • Figure skating, Kaetlyn Osmond, Gabrielle Daleman, Tuesday, 8 p.m.-12:30 a.m. ET

Canada will be well-represented when the women's short program begins. Osmond and Daleman are the reigning world championship silver and bronze medallists, respectively, and both contributed to Canada's gold-medal performance in last week's team event.

Osmond's season includes a victory at Skate Canada and a third-place finish at the Grand Prix final while Daleman earned top spot at the Canadian championships.

Coquitlam, B.C., native Larkyn Austman will also make her Olympic debut, coming off a third-place showing at nationals.

  • Alpine skiing, Lindsey Vonn, Tuesday, 9 p.m. ET

The American ski legend will compete in what's likely her final Olympic downhill. Vonn has 81 career World Cup wins, leaving her just five behind Sweden's Ingemar Stenmark's all-time record.

Forty-two of her victories have come in the downhill. In her only competition of the Games so far, Vonn was sixth in the women's super-G.  

  • Men's ski cross, Brady Leman, Kevin Drury, Chris Del Bosco, Tuesday, 11:15 p.m.-12:45 a.m. ET

Leman and Del Bosco finished fourth in Sochi and Vancouver, respectively, and should be in the mix for the podium here. The pair have been mainstays on the Canadian squad and World Cup circuit and each have had their share of success at the Winter X Games.

Drury is the top Canadian in the World Cup rankings, sitting seventh heading into Pyeongchang. 

  • Speed skating, Ivanie Blondin, Josie Morrison, Isabelle Weidemann, 6 a.m. ET

The Canadian trio looks to rebound from recent disappointment in the women's team pursuit. While Canada is the world and Olympic record-holder, the event hasn't been too kind lately.

In Sochi, Canada failed to make it out of the quarters and settled for fifth, and they failed to finish at last year's world championships.

Blondin and Weidemann were part of that world-championship squad and together with Morrison, have pulled through to the semifinal in Pyeongchang, setting up a clash with Japan.

  • Women's bobsleigh, Kaillie Humphries, Phylicia George, Wednesday, 6:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m. ET

Humphries has some work to do as she enters her final two runs in fifth position. 

The 32-year-old's time of one minute 41.60 seconds puts her just 0.04 seconds back of third, but 0.34 seconds out of first as she seeks her third straight Olympic gold in the two-woman bobsleigh event.

The Calgary native has a new brakeman in George, a former hurdler, after topping the previous two Games alongside Heather Moyse.

Moyse and Alyssia Rissling sit seventh, followed by the third Canadian team of Christine de Bruin and Melissa Lotholz.

  • Men's hockey, Canada vs. Finland, Wednesday, 7:10 a.m.-9:30 a.m. ET

Canada shutout the host Koreans 4-0 on Sunday to book their spot in the quarter-final. They will face Finland, who eventually fought off the very same Koreans to prevail 5-2. 

Nashville Predators prospect, Eeli Tolvanen, had three assists in the win to add to his tournament-leading nine points.
