Will Canada have a Dream Team to replicate the Olympic hockey golds won at Salt Lake and Vancouver?

Team Canada will announce the 25-man roster for the Sochi 2014 Olympic team on Tuesday morning at the Toronto Maple Leafs’ practice facility with Canadian Olympic Committee president Marcel Aubut, Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson and coach Mike Babcock, among others.

The United States announced their Olympic roster during the Winter Classic while European countries are also expected to announce their own rosters on Tuesday – the International Ice Hockey Federation’s deadline.

Following his stunning performance at Canada Hockey Place in 2010, Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo is expected to be named again as part of Canada’s Olympic team.

As part of Team USA, fellow Canucks team member and forward Ryan Kesler will be an enemy of Canada once again. He scored against Canada in the Vancouver 2010 gold medal game.
