Olympic family relations

I'm looking through the various 2010 Olympic rosters (avail here for quick reference http://www.iihf.com/channels10/olymp...0/rosters.html ) and I'm trying catch all of the family relations with the 2010 athletes with previous Olympic games, hockey or otherwise. Here's what I've got so far:

USA - Ryan Suter is the son of Bob Suter, who represented USA at the 1980 Olympics. Uncle Gary also played in the Olympics in 1998 and 2002. Paul Stastny is the son of Peter Stastny, who represented Czechoslovakia at the 1980 Olympics and Slovakia at the 1994 Olympics. Uncles Marian and Anton also played in the 1980 Olympics. Ryan Miller's cousin Kevin Miller represented USA in 1988

Canada - Martin Brodeur's father Denis represented Canada in 1956.

Sweden - Douglas Murray's grandfather Lasse Bjorn represented Sweden in 1952, 1956 and 1960.

Russia - Alexander Ovechkin's mother Tatyana represented Russia in the 1976 and 1980 Summer Olympics playing basketball

I'm sure there's more. Does anyone know of others?

Strange coincidence because Henrik's brother Daniel Sedin won gold with team Sweden in 06.

Miikka Kiprusoff's brother Marko played in at least the 1994 olympics. Niklas' father Matti Hagman played in the 1976 olympics. And Ville Peltonen's dad Esa played in 4 olympics, 1968, 1972, 1976 and 1980.

So they have about 8 olympics combined. Must be the record?

Nah...Chelios has been playing in the Olympics since its inception. Surely that's more than 8, right?

Milan and Zbynek Michalek are related to each other according to wikipedia and eliteprospects but they are both first time Olympians.

Also, Joe I enjoy your blog!

They are indeed brothers, with Zbyněk being the elder.
