Norway names Olympic roster

For completeness sake, I'm going to list every team's roster as they come in. Here are your Norwegian Olympians:

Goal: Pal Gotnes, Andre Lysenstoen, Ruben Smith
Defence: Alexander Bonsaksen, Jonas Holos, Tommy Jakobsen, Juha Kaunismaki, Lars Erik Lund, Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, Mats Trygg
Forwards: Mats Zuccarello Aasen, Morten Ask, Anders Bastiansen, Kristian Forsberg, Mads Hansen, Marius Holtet, Mathis Olimb, Martin Roymark, Per-Age Skroder, Lars Erik Spets, Patrick Thoresen, Tore Vikingstad, Martin Laumann Ylven

Norway is in the same group as Canada and the U.S. at the Olympics, so there are going to be plenty of stories about this team once we get going. The only players with NHL experience are Tollefsen (who plays for the Flyers) and Thoresen (who is now in the KHL after a couple years in the NHL).

As for the rest of these fellows? Well, good luck boys. (About half this team does play in Swedish leagues, which explains how they qualified for one of 12 spots at the Games.)

And it's going to be awfully tempting to buy a Vikingstad jersey come February...
