CALGARY - Canada's Olympic hockey hopefuls are back on the ice at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

The 40-plus players participating in Team Canada's orientation camp this week have been divided into two groups and are practising separately.

Sidney Crosby's white team was the first on the ice today.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star, who is wearing No. 37 at the camp, skated on a line with Jarome Iginla and Rick Nash for the second straight day.

Forward Simon Gagne left the camp due to a groin injury.

"Yeah I spoke to him this morning. He was disappointed but at the same time he wants to be ready for the start of the season and doesn't want to have lingering problems," said Flyers teammate Mike Richards.

The players were scheduled to play a round of golf in the afternoon.

The camp wraps up Thursday with a scrimmage.
