USA Hockey Announces Rosters for the Olympics

Bobby Butler's dad fired up over son receiving Olympic nod

The NHL's refusal to release its players to play in the Olympics has left each of the men's teams in the same boat. Terry, the second leading scorer for the Pioneers, will miss a few games with DU, including a home series against Colorado College and another series against St. Cloud State.

Gionta has a long history with USA Hockey and will serve as the captain. A total of 15 players have appeared in the National Hockey League, including AHL star Chris Bourque and European-based forwards Mark Arcobello and Jim Slater and defensemen James Wisniewski and Bobby Sanguinetti. The 25-year-old won gold in the 2010 and 2014 Paralympics.

Duggan is the second player to captain the U.S. Olympic women's hockey team twice, joining Cammi Granato, Tony Granato's sister.

Team USA won the first women's ice hockey Olympic gold medal ever awarded in 1998, and has reached the podium at each Games since, claiming silver in 2002, 2012 and 2014, and bronze in 2006, while Canada has won gold at each of those Games. "There was consideration of a lot of players who were there that have had good years and made it hard on us".




There will be two more goaltenders added to the roster "later in January", according to USA Hockey. Never would I have imagined playing at the highest level of hockey representing my country. Granato said after the pre-Olympic Deutschland Cup that Zapolski had the tools to be the Americans' starting goalie even though it was too early to name him as such. Because NHL players aren't going, Gionta called the tournament "wide open", something Canada coach Willie Desjardins and others have said in recent months.

The 2018 team features numerous players who went to the Deutschland Cup in Germany in October in what amounted to both a trial and their only warm-up games ahead of Pyeongchang.

"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, who's now playing in Sweden.

Both will compete for the Americans at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, from February 9-25. The big one is the Olympics. Still, no current Boston College men's skaters made the cut, and only one former Eagle is listed as member: Brian Gionta. "I would love to end my career with something like that".
