A broken left foot will keep NHL scoring champion Sidney Crosby at home but 18-year-old Ryan Ramczyk Jersey Penguins teammate Jordan Staal is on his way to Moscow to join older brother Eric on the team.Canada officially has 14 players on its roster - nine forwards, three defencemen and two goalies. Invitations have also been extended to other players who have recently been eliminated from the playoffs.One that isn't expected to join the team is New York Islanders forward Ryan Smyth, an unrestricted free agent who is nursing a sprained knee ligament. Smyth has played Terron Armstead Jersey in seven world championships, two Olympics and a World Cup for Canada.Crosby told reporters in Pittsburgh that he played the final 2 weeks of the regular season and the playoffs with the broken foot.He led the world championship in scoring as an 18-year-old last year in Latvia and would loved to have joined Staal in Ru sia."It would have been a huge thrill to play for Team Canada," Crosby said Saturday as the Penguins cleaned out their lockers at Mellon Arena.Jordan Staal led the entire NHL with seven short-handed goals this season. He finished his rookie season with 29 goals and 42 points in 81 games.Many had the teenager pegged to spend another year with the OHL's Peterborough Petes before he earned Sterling Moore Jersey a spot with the Penguins out of training camp last fall. He never looked back.Staal Bobby Hebert Jersey is still young enough that he could play for Canada at next year's world junior championship, although the Penguins will surely hold on to him as they did this year.His brother, Eric, is one of four Carolina Hurricanes who have committed to joining Canada as well. The older Staal had 30 goals and 70 points in 82 games this season.
