After a long and windy press conference Tuesday in Toronto, Team Canada general manager Steve Yzerman nervously announced the 25-man roster for the Sochi Olympics. Kings forward Jeff Carter and defenseman Drew Doughty were among the names selected for the team that will defending the gold medal won in Vancouver in 2010. Carter’s selection was a mild surprise, given that he missed a good chunk of games because of a broken foot. Doughty’s was a no-brainer.
Carter played for Canada at the World Junior Championships in 2006.
Doughty was with Team Canada in Vancouver in ’10.
