FRISCO, Tex. – USA Hockey announced today that Dallas Stars center Mike Modano has been invited to participate in the Men’s Olympic Orientation Camp from August 17-19 at Seven Bridges Ice Arena in Woodridge, Illinois. He is one of 34 players to be invited to the camp, designed to assist in the preparation of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team that will compete at the XXI Olympic Winter Games to be held from Feb. 12-28, 2010, in Vancouver, B.C.

Modano is one of five players invited to the camp that has previous Olympics experience.

“I am privileged to be invited to Team USA’s Olympic Orientation Camp,” said Modano. “I’ve been lucky enough to represent my country at the Olympics in the past and I would very much like to do so again in 2010. I’d like to thank USA Hockey for the opportunity to hopefully make this team. It would be an honor.”

Modano has played for Team USA on 11 separate occasions -- three Olympic Games (1998, 2002, 2006), twice at the World Cup of Hockey (1996, 2004), three times at the World Championships (1990, 1993, 2005), once at the Canada Cup (1991), and twice at the World Junior Championships (1988, 1989).

The 2010 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team is under the direction of Brian Burke, general manager; David Poile, associate general manager; and Jim Johannson, assistant executive director of hockey operations for USA Hockey. The 2010 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team team will be coached by Ron Wilson with John Tortorella and Scott Gordon serving as assistant coaches.
