Bruins captain Zdeno Chara will serve as captain for Slovakia, while forwards Patrice Bergeron (Canada), David Krejci (Czech Republic), Loui Eriksson (Sweden) and goaltender Tuukka Rask (Finland) will all represent their countries.

This is Chara’s third time playing in the Olympics and the second invite for Bergeron, Eriksson and Krejci. Rask will be making his Olympic debut. Bergeron won a gold medal in Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
