Richards, Gagne to battle Carter, Pronger at Canadian Olympic camp.

With the Canadian Olympic team scheduled to begin organized practices on Monday, the 46 active players have been split into two practice groups, which will finish the short camp with a Thursday evening scrimmage.

The Flyers’ invites will be split, with defenseman Chris Pronger and forward Jeff Carter placed on Team Red, while forwards Mike Richards and Simon Gagne will be on Team White.

On a side note, also playing for White is Penguins’ forward Sidney Crosby, which is interesting considering the bitter rivalry between Crosby and Richards.
