TORONTO (AP) — Canada's 25-man ice hockey squad for the Sochi Winter Olympics is built around key contributors from the team that won gold four years ago in Vancouver.

Sidney Crosby, who scored the game-winning goal over the United States in overtime, is back and likely will be named captain.

Roberto Luongo, who was in net for the completion of the 2010 tournament, could get another chance next month as he's back on the roster following some tumultuous times.

Jonathan Toews, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Patrice Bergeron are also among the Vancouver medallists named to the team on Tuesday.
