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.

Separating the best from the rest. Where is your team in our power rankings?

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.

John Tavares and Carey Price lead the group of newcomers, which also includes the injured Steven Stamkos, who is already skating after breaking his right leg in November.

Canada's victory in Vancouver was its second gold medal since the NHL began sending its players at the 1998 Nagano Games.

Canada opens the Sochi tournament on Feb. 13 against Norway.
