Ruutu, Sekera Named to Olympic Squads
Three Hurricanes will represent countries in Sochi.
RALEIGH, NCTuomo Ruutu (Finland) and Andrej Sekera (Slovakia) were today named to the rosters for their respective countries for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. USA Hockey named Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk to its squad on Jan. 1, so three Hurricanes players will compete in the tournament, which begins Feb. 12.

Ruutu, 30, has scored four goals and added eight assists (12 points) in 38 games for the Hurricanes this season. The Vantaa, Finland, native has represented his country in 10 major international tournaments, earning medals in all 10. He won bronze with Finland at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and scored six goals to lead Finland to the gold medal at the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship.

Andrej Sekera, 27, leads Hurricanes defensemen and ranks tied for seventh among NHL blueliners in goals (7). The Bojnice, Slovakia, native also leads Carolina defensemen and is tied for 15th among league defensemen in points (24). Sekera has represented Slovakia in a number of international tournaments, including the 2010 Winter Olympics and the 2008, 2009 and 2010 IIHF World Championships.
