Budaj, Svatos Selected To Slovakia Camp
Avalanche goaltender Peter Budaj and forward Marek Svatos were among 36 players selected to Slovakia's Olympic Summer Camp, which opened on Tuesday (Aug. 4) in the city of Poprad.

Both players were members of Slovakia's 2006 Olympic team, which lost to the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals in Torino, Italy. Budaj appeared in three games at the Olympics, posting a 2-1-0 record with a 2.01 goals-against average and .924 save percentage. Svatos skated in all six contests at the Winter Games but was held pointless.

The 2010 Olympic Winter Games will be held from Feb. 12-28, 2010, in Vancouver, B.C.
