United States 2018 Olympics Roster Announced

Colorado native and University of Denver forward Troy Terry was selected for the U.S. Men's Olympic Hockey Team less than a month before the 2018 Winter Olympics are set to begin in PyeongChang, South Korea, from February 9-25.

Terry, 20, is among four NCAA players selected to the team, and he will probably miss four DU games - a home-and-home series against Colorado College Feb. 16-17 and a two-game series at St. Cloud State Feb. 23-24.

The roster was unveiled New Year's Day as part of the 2018 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Citi Field in New York City.

Denver's Troy Terry, Boston University's Jordan Greenway, St. Cloud State's Will Borgen and Harvard's Ryan Donato are the NCAA players who should give the USA a shot of youth.

Right now, World Health Organization authorities said there is only a clinical description and no prevention or treatment options. It also lists conditions medical personnel can use to decide if a gamer's behaviour can be described as a mental health disorder.

Neither Team U.S.A.'s men nor women have won an Olympic gold medal in the 21st century. The United States certainly won't be the only team affected by the NHL's lack of participation in the Olympics, but they have undoubtedly been hit as hard as anybody. Henrik Lundqvist, who has been in goal for all four of the wins, stopped 31 shots to help the Rangers improve to 6-2-3 in their last 11 overall. Every kid dreams of playing in the Olympics and I'm the same way.

Tony Granato, who played in the 1988 Olympics and coaches at Wisconsin, will be behind the bench in Pyeongchang, South Korea, as the USA seeks its first Olympic gold medal since the 1980 "Miracle On Ice" team.

On Dec. 22, Canada named five former Badgers women's hockey players to its Olympic team: forwards Emily Clark, Sarah Nurse and Blayre Turnbull; defenseman Meaghan Mikkelson; and goaltender Ann-Renee Desbiens. The U.S. lost the bronze-medal game to Finland in 2014 and got the silver at Vancouver in 2010.

"We have a decent amount of players that are already used to playing in Europe on the big ice, which can be helpful", said defenseman Ryan Gunderson, one of the eight players on the roster without National Hockey League experience and who now is playing in Sweden. Ryan Donato, a Buffalo Sabres prospect, is the son of 1992 Olympian Ted Donato. He played for the U.S.at the 2006 Olympics and has been practicing with the A.H.L.'s Rochester Americans to stay in shape for Pyeongchang. Bob Johnson went on sabbatical in the 1975-76 college hockey season to coach the U.S.to a fifth-place finish and took three UW players - Steve Alley, Bob Lundeen and John Taft - along with assistant coach Grant Standbrook with him.
