December

Lightning goalie Antero Niitttymaki has made Team Finland for the 2010 Olympics. Niittymaki played a big role in Finland reaching the gold-medal game in the 2006 Olympics in  Turin.

Calgary's Miikka Kiprusoff is expected to be the starting goaltender. Minnesota's Niklas Backstrom is also on the roster.
