Winnipeg-born Jonathan Towes was the last player to be announced to the team, and there is some speculation that he might be designated as the captain for the Canadian Olympic team.

Also born in Winnipeg and heading to the Olympics is St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen.  He’s the son of long-time Winnipeg Jet Thomas Steen. Alexander holds dual citizenship with Canada and Sweden and so he’ll be making his first appearance at an Olympics with the Swedish squad.

Of the current Winnipeg Jets, Blake Wheeler was announced to the United States squad back on January 1.

Learning today that they will be heading to the Olympics are Olli Jokinen (Finland), Ondrej Pavlec (Czech Republic) and forward Michael Frolik (Czech Republic).
