Goalie Jhonas Enroth and defenseman Henrik Tallinder will represent Sweden. Tallinder and Daniel Alfredsson will be two of the squad's leaders. Enroth figures to be a backup behind Henrik Lundqvist.

Forward Zemgus Girgensons will represent Latvia. He's that country's only NHL player. Sabres coach Ted Nolan, a Native Canadian, will coat the Latvians.

These announcements Tuesday come on the heels of the U.S. Olympic team naming Ryan Miller one of its three goalies. He will compete with Jonathan Quick and Jimmy Howard for the starting job.
