One former National Hockey League defenseman is exchanged for another as JASON HOLLAND makes way on the German Olympic squad for SVEN BUTENSCHON, a 33-year-old who played the last eight of his 140 career NHL games for the Vancouver Canucks during the 2005-06 season.

German national team coach UWE KRUPP had come under fire in some quarters for the omission of veteran Buffalo Sabres forward JOCHEN HECHT from the Olympic squad named in late December. 

Hecht and 24-year-old KAI HOSPELT of EHC Wolfsburg, a former 7th round draft choice (2003, # 216) of the San Jose Sharks, are late additions in attack for Germany.

ALEXANDER BARTA of EHC Hamburg and Buffalo Sabres farmhand PHILIPP GOGULLA, who has had a bit of a disappointing rookie season in the American Hockey League for the Portland Pirates, are the unfortunate forwards giving way.

=============================================================

A solitary change for the Olympic squad of Sweden national team coach BENGT-AKE GUSTAFSSON :

Detroit Red Wings forward TOMAS HOLMSTROM was dropped due to his lack of fitness as a result the nondislocated foot fracture suffered a month ago.

JOHAN FRANZEN, whose Olympic hopes appeared wrecked after ACL surgery this past fall, takes his club teammate’s place on the Swedish roster.

PETER FORSBERG, who has played just 17 Swedish Elitserien games this season while struggling with physical fitness all year, is on board Tre Kronor’s ship and, apparently, is all set to go.

Forsberg, 36, is a veteran of 18 matches (2 go 17 as, 19 pts) at three previous Winter Games and is the holder of two Olympic gold medals, as well.

=====================================================

The injury bug bit Belarus hard the past few months; top forwards MIKHAIL GRABOVSKI of the Toronto Maple Leafs as well as ANDREI KOSTITSYN of the Montreal Canadiens will miss the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.

A pair of Dynamo Minsk players — 27-year old DMITRI MELESHKO, who has appeared at five major international tournaments already for Belarus, in addition to former St. Louis Blues 3rd round draft choice and 24-year-old coach’s son KONSTANTIN ZAKHAROV — are the replacements for the injured pair of NHLers.

Zakharov, who previously skated 92 American Hockey League games (12 go 16 as, 28 pts) over the course of two seasons for the Worcester Ice Cats and Peoria Rivermen, has spent most of this season with Dynamo Minsk’s farm club, HC Yunost Minsk (29 ga, 7 go 15 as, 22 pts) of the Belarus elite league.

Meanwhile, half of the defense corps originally named to the Olympic team two months ago has turned over for Belarus and coach MIKHAIL ZAKHAROV.

Two of the new blueliners are, not surprisingly, from the Dynamo Minsk club of the Kontinental Hockey League. 38-year-old ALEXANDER MAKRITSKY, having first competed for Belarus at the C Pool of the 1994 IIHF World Championships, is heavily experienced if aging while 30-year-old ALEXANDER RYADINSKY has appeared at five major internationals for Belarus, as well.

23-year-old Detroit Red Wings farmhand SERGEI KOLOSOV of the AHL’s Grand Rapid Griffins is, perhaps, the most promising long-term prospect of the substitutes.

25-year-old ANDREI KAREV has spent most of this season (and career) with HC Yunost Minsk.
