Can a goaltender be the captain of an Olympic team?

Could Miller or Thomas be captain of team USA?

Could Luongo or Brodeur be captain of team Canada?

Update:

I'm not asking *will* they, I am asking if a goaltender could be named captain, or if there was a rule against it.

Miller, Thomas, Luongo, and Brodeur were just examples.

    ^^^ Jamie Langenbrunner has been named the captain.......

    "A"'s are Rafalski, Parise, Brown and Suter..........Drury didn't even get an "A".

    To answer the Q.......IIHF rules do not permit a goalie as captain.

    Roberto Luongo is the captain for my Vancouver Canucks right now, though it is unofficial since he is a goalie.

    So technically if an Olympic team does have a goalie for their team they would not be wearing the C on their jersey.

    i assume they could be a captain of an olympic team but not wear the "c" like in the nhl.

    but miller or thomas have no chance of being captain of team usa my guess is Chris Drury will get that honor.

    and canada already named a captain in scott neidurmeyer
