Two Oilers players are suiting up for their respective countries at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games from February 16 through February 27 this month. Oilers President of Hockey Operations Kevin Lowe also had a hand in putting together Team Canada as the team's Assistant Executive Director. 

After a bit of a slow start, Canada came on strong in an 8-0 win over Norway on Tuesday. Jarome Iginla scored three goals to the lead the way for the Canadians in their tournament-opening win.

Denis Grebeshkov and Team Russia got off to a fast start in the late game against Latvia, eventually winning 8-2. Grebeshkov had 15:45 of ice time, ranking him second among Russian blueliners. He also had a +1 rating and one shot on goal.

On Wednesday, Lubomir Visnovsky takes to the ice for the first time at these Olympic Games. Slovakia plays the Czech Republic at 10:00 p.m. MST.
