Jackets gain an Olympian

Newly acquired defenseman Milan Jurcina was named to the Slovakian team for the upcoming Winter Olympics today. He joins Fedor Tyutin, Samuel Pahlsson and Fredrik Modin as Jacket players who will be representing their countries in Vancouver. Canada names their roster tomorrow, and Rick Nash will be on the team without a doubt. The Czech Republic will also name their squad tomorrow, and there's a strong chance that Jan Hejda will be included on the roster.
