11 veterans lead roster of US women’s hockey team
Eleven returning Olympians are on the roster for the women’s hockey team that will represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics.
The roster was announced during the break between periods of the NHL’s Winter Classic.
Julie Chu is heading to her fourth Olympics. She’ll be looking for a gold medal to go with the two silvers and a bronze she’s already got. Canada has won the last three Olympic titles.
Also making the team was Amanda Kessel, the sister of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel. Phil Kessel was playing in the Winter Classic and hoping to make the U.S. men’s team that was to be introduced after the game.
