  • Forwards Jere Lehtinen (1994, 1998, 2002, 2006) and Teemu Selänne (1992, 1998, 2002, 2006) will play in their fifth Olympic Winter Games. It'll be the fourth time for Kimmo Timonen, Saku Koivu and Ville Peltonen.
  • Peltonen has played the most international games (243) and scored the most goals (78) for Finland.
  • The team looks quite different from the 2009 IIHF World Championship squad. Only six players on the Vancouver 2010 roster played in that tournament.
  • Fourteen players from Turin 2006 will get another shot at winning the first Olympic gold for Finland. Four  years ago, they settled for silver with a painful loss to Sweden in the final.
  • Finnish coach Jukka Jalonen had plenty of choices for his Olympic roster. He chose to go with 18 NHLers, four players from the Russian KHL, and one from Sweden.
