Rafalski, 36, is the oldest player on the Team USA roster, on which the average age is 26.5 years.

He has won three Stanley Cups (with New Jersey in 2000 and 2003, with Detroit in 2008) and will bring a wealth of knowledge and composure to the young American lineup. Rafalski is one of four players on the team to have a Stanley Cup ring and the only one to have gone undrafted.

He won a silver medal with Team USA at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, recording two points in five games -- including a game-tying goal during the second period of the gold medal game.

Quote of the Day

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
