Winter Olympics 2018: USA Men's Hockey Roster, Betting Odds For Pyeongchang

Russia's ice hockey team received a big send-off on the eve of their departure for Pyeongchang 2018 when they played a warm-up match against Spartak Moscow

The U.S. will open its Olympic campaign on Sunday morning, 2:40 a.m. ET against Finland.

That means you won't see any National Hockey League stars on Team USA this year - but you'll still understand the flow of the game.

After serving as the goaltending coach with the silver medal-winning squad in 2014, Stauber is happy to have control of the reins as he looks to lead this team of thoroughbreds across the finish line. Switzerland will be looking to defend the bronze medal it won in Sochi, although it finished seventh at the past two World Championships.

The first two games will be key for the Canadians to develop chemistry before the big-time clash with the United States.

Their acquired knowledge could be important should any of the deciding games go to a shootout - a risk in global hockey that Canada knows all too well after losing to Sweden in such fashion in 1994, the last time the Olympic tournament was played without NHL players.

Coming into her final season, skating at the Olympics for a final time on home ice is seen as a ideal way to end her career. But Canada rallied to win the final five games of their series. "This leadership group will set the pace not only on the ice with their drive and work ethic, but also off the ice as we all embrace the tremendous opportunity to represent Canada and Canada's game on the world stage in PyeongChang". "Some players have a sense for the game".

"We all know when we play the U.S.it's probably going to be a one-goal game either way", said Melody Davidson, GM of the women's programs.

Excited and convinced they can finally grasp the Olympic gold that has eluded them for two decades; that after the women's final February 22 gold medals will rest above their hearts, side by side with symbols of perhaps an even greater triumph. She said the US has upped its mental toughness in preparation for PyeongChang as they aim to earn their first Olympic gold in 20 years. We're here to win gold. That's definitely the case for the length of hockey games at the Olympics.

"We have some athletes on this Canadian team who watched the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and were good junior athletes at the time".

Team USA has been helping players and their families with travel logistics, and the players have online courses and a smart phone app to help them get acclimated to Korea and the layout of the Olympic venue.

After college, Roe played for the Adirondack Phantoms in the American Hockey League, which serves as the primary developmental league for the NHL. At least three players from North Korea will dress in each game.

It's that youthful exuberance that has brought an added bolt of energy to a veteran team determined to erase the sting of Sochi's silver medal and bring home the first Olympic gold in 20 years. "I never even made it to a state tournament". Greenway will be the first African American hockey player in history to play for the Olympics U.S. hockey team.

"I dreamed of [it] as a kid, and I didn't think it was going to happen before I graduated college, but I'm fortunate that it did, and I just couldn't be more excited!" "I got cut from every team possible".

"Everything we fought for in the past, everything we continue to fight for is to grow the game and to enhance the sport in the United States", Kendall Coyne says ahead of her second Games.

"Younger athletes have the advantage of faster physical recovery as well as an attitude of 'nothing to lose, ' which allows them to leave it all on the field of play", she said. They are filled with confidence that they have the best 23 players and the right coach to help them reach the top. In the IIHF rankings Finland is third, Russian Federation fourth and Sweden fifth. Raty is a two-time NCAA champion with the Minnesota Golden Gophers and is playing in her fourth Olympics.

There are few things hockey players enjoy more than chirping at each other, so naturally much of the conversation came with sarcasm and revolved around ribbing each other. In 81 games in the Finnish Women's League Lindstedt has 483 penalty minutes.
