(Ice Hockey) Crosby to lead Canadian team in Sochi
(01-08 17:23)

Sidney Crosby who scored Canada's gold-medal winning goal at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver is among eleven returning Olympians in their squad for Sochi.
Amongst the Canadian Olympic debutants are goalie Carey Price, forward Steven Stamkos, and defenseman P.K. Subban.
The Russian squad is led by NHL sniper Alex Ovechkin, and star playmakers Evgeni Malkin, Pavel Datsyuk. Former NHL star Ilya Kovalchuk, now playing in the Russian league, is also on the team. Sweden features five players from the NHL's Detroit Red Wings, including forward Daniel Alfredsson, who gets a last shot at Olympic glory. Finland will be missing its national icon Saku Koivu, who apparently declined an invitation to his fifth Olympics.
However, the Finns will be guided by the experienced 43-year-old Teemu Selanne, who will be playing in the Winter games for the sixth time. --RTHK
