New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal has been included in Canada's roster for their Olympic orientation camp next month, as he remains optimistic about his comeback after a serious eye injury. 

The 26-year-old was a welcome addition to the 48 strong list, after recovering from the injury he sustained in early March. 

Staal suffered the injury during an NHL game when he received a puck to the face causing damage to his eye. 

He missed two months of the season as a result, before returning to the ice against Washington in Game 3 of the play-off series. 

However Staal failed to appear for the remainder of the season after suffering from double vision and hindered depth perception as the consequences of his injury continued. 

But having enjoyed a summer of rest and recovery, the Ranger player is confident he is ready to return to action as he looks to put his injury behind him. 

Following Staal's problems, the NHL set a ruling in June making visors mandatory for all players.
