Vancouver, B.C. – In response to media reports, Canada’s Men’s Olympic Team executive director Steve Yzerman issued the following statement on Wednesday, February 10.

“Earlier today, I contacted Jeff Carter of the Philadelphia Flyers and advised him that in the event that Ryan Getzlaf is unable to take part in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games due to injury, he will take his spot on the roster.  I asked him to be ready and prepare in case he has to join us in Vancouver later this week.”

“In the meantime, we will give ourselves, Ryan and the Anaheim Ducks as much time this week as necessary to determine if he will be able to play for Canada in Vancouver.”
