Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry named to Canadian Olympic team
Getzlaf and Perry were among the 13 forwards announced today in a telecast shown across Canada.
Oh, and this time, unlike 2006, Canada took that Sidney Crosby kid. "It's a special honor," Crosby told Canada's TSN.
Also chosen: Boston's Patrice Bergeron, San Jose's Dany Heatley, Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton, Calgary's Jarome Iginla, Dallas' Brenden Morrow, Columbus' Rick Nash, Philadelphia's Mike Richards, Carolina's Eric Staal and Chicago's Jonathan Toews.
