The Olympic roster announcements are coming in hot with the Games just a few weeks away. 

Switzerland got in on the action on Tuesday morning, unveiling the 25-man roster that will represent the nation at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing next month. 

The full roster list can be found below. 

Forwards: 

Andres Ambuhl, Denis Hollenstein, Sven Andrighetto, Denis Malgin, Christoph Bertschy, Simon Moser, Enzo Corvi, Killian Mottet, Gaetan Haas, Sven Senteler, Fabrice Herzog, Dario Simion, Gregory Hoffmann, Joel Vermin. 

Defensemen: 

Santeri Alatolo, Christian Marti, Raphael Diaz, Mirco Muller, Michael Fora, Roman Untersander, Romain Loeffel, Yannick Weber. 

Goaltenders: 

Reto Berra, leonardo Genoni, Joren Van Pottelberghe. 

Despite the NHL opting against sending its players to Beijing back in December, this year's Swiss roster still has some familiar faces. 

Among the most notable names is Denis Malgin, a 25-year-old forward with nearly 200 NHL games under his belt who has split his big-league career between the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs. Malgin is actually still under contract with the Leafs despite currently playing in the Swiss league, and last appeared for the club in 2019-20. 

Gaetan Haas also brings an NHL resume to the Swiss team this year, suiting up for 92 total games for the Edmonton Oilers between 2019-2021 before departing to Switzerland to play for Biel HC this summer. Sven Andrighetto joins Haas as another NHL alumnus in Switzerland's forward corps, with a team-leading 216 career games on his ledger, having last played for the Colorado Avalanche in 2018-19.

 And then there's Gregory Hoffmann, who played in the NHL this season with the Columbus Blue Jackets before ultimately having his contract terminated so he could return to his home country. 

With one of the most even playing fields in recent Olympic history, this year's gold medal will be anyone's to earn.
