Washington Capitals Alexander Ovechkin is going back to the Olympics again, and this time, he's bringing two of his teammates with him.

The Russian national team announced Thursday that left wing Alexander Ovechkin, right wing Alexander Semin and goalie Semyon
Varlamov will be on the 23-man roster for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.

It will be Ovechkin's second Olympic appearance. He earned all-tournament honors at the 2006 winter games, when Russia
finished fourth.

It is the first time Semin and Varlamov have been named to an Olympic team.
