Flyers captain Claude Giroux was the only member from the orange 'n black named to Team Canada’s Olympic Orientation Camp roster Monday.
 
Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews - yeah, they’re all going too (see full roster).
 
Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock will assume the same position for Team Canada at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in February.
 
The Flyers recently locked up their 25-year-old center to an eight-year contract extension worth $66.2 million with an annual cap hit of $8.275 million that kicks in 2014-15.
 
A native of Hearst, Ont., Giroux would have been a restricted free agent after 2013-14.

Team Canada’s camp runs Aug. 25-28 in Calgary. Ken Hitchcock and Lindy Ruff are Babcock’s assistant coaches.
