Dec. 01, 1997
MOSCOW (AP) _ Russia added three players to its Olympic hockey team Monday, a aquad that could put the Bure brothers on the ice together for the first time.
Alexander Steblin, president of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, added Valery Bure, Alexei Morozov and Sergei Krivokrasov.
Bure's brother, Pavel, a star wing with the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL, previously had been chosen to the team. The addition of Valery, a Montreal Canadiens right wing, raised the possibility that the brothers would play together for the first time in their professional careers.
