by Jeremy Rupke on December 25, 2009

The Russians have released their picks for the 2010 Olympic hockey team. The Canadian team is set to be released on December 30th and will be posted on this blog when it is released. For now we can take a look at the Russian team and see what Canada will be up against. By the looks of it they have a STACKED team, although the Russians decided not to pick Alexi Kovalev and have picked quite a few players who are not playing in the NHL.
