***Whitney Officially Named To Team USA***

New, comments

THE TELETYPE:

Team USA has officially named Ryan Whitney to the US Olympic roster for this month's games in Vancouver.   The American blueline has two major injuries in Paul Martin, who was recovering from a broken arm when he was named to the team in January, and MIke Komisarek, who went down with a shoulder injury recently and officially withdrew from the games yesterday.  Hurricanes defenseman Tim Gleason was also added to the squad.

Helene Elliott of the LA Times previously reported that Whitney lost out his spot to Martin, and that Team USA may have named Martin knowing that they could replace him with Whitney if the Devils blueliner wasn't healthy in time.
