Hockey Canada announced Monday that the roster it is submitting for the men’s hockey tournament at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games is the same as the roster that was announced on December 30 in Saskatoon, Sask., meaning Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf has been given the okay to play.
Getzlaf suffered a sprained ankle last week and missed two games before coming back for last night's 7-3 win over the Oilers in Edmonton. Getzlaf had two goals (both in the third period) and two assists.
Team Canada had the Flyers' Jeff Carter on standby as a replacement if needed when Getzlaf first suffered the injury. Carter was informed he will not be added to the roster.
