Crosby, Brodeur lead Canada Olympic team

Sidney Crosby, the youngest captain in NHL history to win a Stanley Cup, was chosen Wednesday for Canada's Olympic hockey team, four years after being left off the underachieving squad that finished seventh in Turin, Italy.
Crosby was among the easiest picks for executive director Steve Yzerman, the longtime Red Wings captain whose choices have been debated and evaluated for months in hockey-obsessed Canada, which virtually shut down for the announcement.
Among those selected were goaltender Martin Brodeur, who recently set the NHL record with his 104th career shutout; defensemen Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger; forward Jarome Iginla, the star of Canada's 2002 gold-medal winning team; Joe Thornton, the NHL scoring leader; and Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, a pair of 24-year-old Anaheim Ducks teammates.
Niedermayer is the captain, with Pronger, Crosby and Iginla as alternate captains.
