Brooks Orpik named to Team USA

Team USA named their roster for the Olympics; and as widely predicted Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik made the squad.  Forward Bill Guerin and Alex Goligoski -- both seen as longshots as best -- were left out.

Orpik's inclusion brings the Pens final Olympian total to five, he'll join Sidney Crosby and Marc-Andre Fleury (Canada) and Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Gonchar (Russia) in the big tourny.  The US and Canada are in the same group and will play each other; so it seems like Orpik and Crosby will cross paths at some point.

In former Pens news for Team USA: forward Ryan Malone made the team but defensemen Rob Scuderi and Ryan Whitney were both omitted.
