Gonchar will be representing Russia in Olympic competition for the fourth time and will be looking for his third Olympic medal -- he was a member of the silver-medal winning team in 1998 and captured a bronze medal in 2002.

His most recent international competition was the 2007 World Championship where he recorded five points (1-4-5) and was paired with Andrei Markov. “I played with (Markov) in the World Championship in Moscow. We played together and we had a good chemistry. I don’t know what the coach has in mind but at the same time I think we have played well together and we understand each other.”

He represented Russia at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, the second World Cup of his career (1996) and led defensemen in scoring with three points (1-2-3).

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
