A sixth Olympics is in the cards for Teemu Selanne as he has been named to Finland's 25-man roster for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Selanne will be just the second player in history to participate in six Olympic Games, having previously represented Finland at Albertville 1992, Nagano 1998, Salt Lake City 2002, Torino 2006 and Vancouver 2010.

The Finns won bronze at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, topping Slovakia in the third-place game.

The roster includes 10 returnees from the Vancouver roster, including Olli Jokinen and Antti Niemi.

Absent from the 2014 roster is Anaheim Ducks forward Saku Koivu, despite his brother - Mikko Koivu - making the squad.

The team also includes a pair of teenagers in Florida Panthers forward Aleksander Barkov and Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Olli Maatta.

The complete Finnish roster is as follows:

Goaltenders: Kari Lehtonen, Antti Niemi, Tuukka Rask.

Defence: Juuso Hietanen, Lasse Kukkonen, Sami Lepisto, Olli Maatta, Sami Salo, Kimmo Timonen, Sami Vatanen, Ossi Vaananen.

Forwards: Juhamatti Aaltonen, Aleksander Barkov, Valtteri Filppula, Mikael Granlund, Jussi Jokinen, Olli Jokinen, Mikko Koivu, Leo Komarov, Petri Kontiola, Lauri Korpikoski, Jori Lehtera, Antti Pihlstrom, Tuomo Ruutu, Teemu Selanne.
