Volchenkov earns Team Russia invite

Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov on Monday was named one of 35 invitees to the Russian Olympic orientation camp.

Volchenkov was among 13 players who participated on the 2010 Olympic team that lost in the quarterfinals to Canada. Eighteen of the Russian invitees are NHLers.

The camp will be held Aug. 23-24 in Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Also returning from that team are goalies Evgeni Nabokov (New York Islanders and Semyon Varlamov (Colorado Avalanche); defensemen Sergei Gonchar (Dallas Stars), Andrei Markov (Montreal Canadiens), Ilya Nikulin (Ak Bars Kazan); Fedor Tyutin (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Anton Volchenkov (New Jersey Devils); and forwards Pavel Datsyuk (Detroit Red Wings); Ilya Kovalchuk (SKA St. Petersburg), Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh Penguins), Alexander Radulov (CSKA) and Alexander Semin (Carolina Hurricanes).

Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets will join Nabokov and Varlamov at the camp. They'll be joined by Kontinental Hockey League goalies Konstantin Barulin of Ak Bars Kazan and Vasily Koschechkin of Severstal Cherepovets.

The Russian team will be coached by Zinetula Bilyaletdinov, who led his country to gold at the 2012 IIHF World Championships.
