Earlier on Monday, the American, Canadian and Russian Olympic orientation camp rosters were revealed. NHL.com also shared Finland’s group, which includes 18 returning members of the team that won the bronze in 2010.

The two biggest questions that come to mind are:

1) Will Teemu Selanne hang up his skates before the 2014 Winter Olympics?

2) Which goalie will stand out in a distinguished group of netminders to become the No. 1 guy?

Here’s the full camp roster:

Forwards: Juhamatti Aaltonen, Aleksander Barkov, Sean Bergenheim, *Valtteri Filppula, Mikael Granlund, *Niklas Hagman, Teemu Hartikainen, Juha-Pekka Hytonen, Jarkko Immonen, Jesse Joensuu, Jussi Jokinen, *Olli Jokinen, *Niko Kapanen, *Mikko Koivu, *Saku Koivu (Anaheim), Leo Komarov, Petri Kontiola, Lauri Korpikoski, Jarno Koskiranta, Jori Lehtera, Ville Leino, *Antti Miettinen, Janne Pesonen, Lennart Petrell, Antti Pihlstrom, *Jarkko Ruutu, *Tuomo Ruutu, Sakari Salminen, Veli-Matti Savinainen and *Teemu Selanne.

Defensemen: Juuso Hietanen, Topi Jaakola, Joonas Jarvinen, Jere Karalahti, *Lasse Kukkonen, Teemu Laakso, *Sami Lepisto, *Toni Lydman, Tuukka Mantyla, *Janne Niskala, Petteri Nummelin, *Joni Pitkanen, *Sami Salo, *Kimmo Timonen, Sami Vatanen and Ossi Vaananen.

Goalies: *Niklas Backstrom, Kari Lehtonen, Antti Niemi, Antti Raanta, Tuukka Rask, Pekka Rinne, Karri Ramo and Petri Vehanen.

* – means that player was part of the 2010 squad.
