Four current members of the Gopher women's hockey team, as well as one alum and one future Gopher, have been named to the 2011 USA Hockey Winter Training Camp roster. Forty-one players are on the camp roster, including 16 Olympians.

Current Gopher defensemen Megan Bozek and Anne Schleper, along with forwards Amanda Kessel and Jen Schoullis were invited to participate in the winter camp. Former Gopher Gigi Marvin (2005-09), who was a member of Team USA at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, will also participate in the training camp. Hannah Brandt, who has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete for the Gophers next season, is the only high school player on the 41-player roster.

In addition to the players with Minnesota ties, Gopher head coach Brad Frost and former Gopher head coach Laura Halldorson will serve as assistant coaches at the training camp.

The Winter Training Camp is set for Dec. 26-31 in Blaine, Minn. The six-day camp, which will take place at the National Sports Center's Schwan Super Rink, will serve as an evaluation camp and training session for the U.S. Women's National Team.
