Former Express Milan Lucic was among 46 players invited by Hockey Canada to their orientation camp for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

The camp will take place from July 24 - 27 in Calgary.

Lucic completed his 2nd season in the NHL in 08-09. Scoring 17 goals and 25 assists with the Boston Bruins.

"(Milan) has the potential to really add a dimension to this team that could be really beneficial. He's not just there because he's a big, strong guy. " Said 2010 Olympic team Executive Director Steve Yzerman.

Former Penticton Panther and Chicago Blackhawk Duncan also earned an invite.

This will be Lucic's 2nd Hockey Canada experience. He captained Team Canada to an undefeated record in the 8 game Super Series vs. Russia in 2007.

With his work ethic he could work his way on as one of the grinders.
Long shot yes, but that's what's alway been said about Milan, so don't count him out.

Very true Gordo. Hearing Yzerman today gives me the vibe that they won't be selecting an all star team. They will also put a high emphasis on role players in the botoom six so he's got a shot.
