  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Gionta on United States Olympic Team

During tonight's Stars-Wild NHL game, USA Hockey announced that former Boston College star Brian Gionta is on the 23-man roster for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

Gionta, presently the top American-born scorer in the NHL who leads the New Jersey Devils in scoring with 33 points in 32 games, is Boston College's all-time leading goal scorer. In 2001, Gionta became the first player ever to be named a Hockey East All-Star for four straight seasons, and finished his career as the league's all-time leading goal-scorer, with 83 goals in 96 league games.

Former BC star Bill Guerin also made the team, and was on hand for the announcement. Brian Leetch, another former Eagle who had been mentioned as a possible selection, did not make the 2006 squad.

The full roster is available here (JPG).
