2014 Winter Olympics: Team Canada Men's Hockey Roster Announced

Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester will be representing Team Canada this year at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong and coach Ken Hitchcock are all ready representing Canada at the 2014 games. Armstrong is Team Canada's Associate Director of Player Personnel, while Hitchcock will be an assistant coach under Mike Babcock.

The selection of the Canadian team will be parsed and picked apart much like the American Olympic team selection was (sorry, Chris Kunitz), but probably without the helpfulness of an insider look at the process itself. Canada has a wealth of riches to choose from, making them extremely dangerous, as usual at the Olympics.

The Blues will be represented on Team Canada on the player side as well. Both Jay Bouwmeester and his defensive partner Alex Pietrangelo have been selected to the team. If Ken Hitchcock has anything to say about it, they'll be paired together.

Here's Team Canada's complete roster:

Goaltenders:

Roberto Luongo - Vancouver Canucks

Carey Price - Montreal Canadiens

Mike Smith - Phoenix Coyotes

Defense:

Shea Weber: Nashville Predators

Marc-Eduard Vlasic - San Jose Sharks

P.K. Subban - Montreal Canadiens

Alex Pietrangelo - St. Louis Blues

Duncan Keith - Chicago Blackhawks

Dan Hamhuis - Vancouver Canucks

Drew Doughty - Los Angeles Kings

Jay Bouwmeester - St. Louis Blues

Forwards:

Jamie Benn - Dallas Stars

Patrice Bergeron - Boston Bruins

Jeff Carter - Los Angeles Kings

Sidney Crosby - Pittsburgh Penguins

Matt Duchene - Colorado Avalanche

Ryan Getzlaf - Anaheim Ducks

Chris Kunitz - Pittsburgh Penguins

Patrick Marleau - San Jose Sharks

Rick Nash - New York Rangers

Corey Perry - Anaheim Ducks

Patrick Sharp - Chicago Blackhawks

Steven Stamkos - Tampa Bay Lightning

John Tavares - New York Islanders

Jonathan Toews - Chicago Blackhawks

It says something that they can leave Martin St. Louis and Claude Giroux off of the roster.

Especially in favor of Chris Kunitz.
