Sidney Crosby, others arrive for Canada's short, off-ice Olympic camp

CALGARY - Sidney Crosby was one of the first players to arrive for Hockey Canada's Olympic orientation camp that runs through Tuesday.

Crosby says the camp is about "just getting an idea for what to expect." High insurance costs will keep players off the ice.

A total of 46 players are set to attend the camp at Canada Olympic Park.

Ottawa Senators defenceman Marc Methot said he understood that because the cost was "through the roof" he and the other 45 players won't be skating, but that there will be optional workouts. .
