U.S. Women's National Team Roster

TAMPA, Fla.  -- Seven players with Golden Gopher ties are among the 23 players named to the 2017-18 U.S. Women's National Team today during a press conference televised live on NHL Network.

Three players from Minnesota's 2016-17 team in Dani Cameranesi, Kelly Pannek, and Lee Stecklein joined Gopher alumnae Megan Bozek ('13), Hannah Brandt ('16), Amanda Kessel ('16), and Gigi Marvin ('09) in securing their places on the 2017-18 U.S. Women's National Team.

The U.S. roster features 21 players who helped the 2017 U.S. Women's National Team earn a gold medal at the IIHF Women's World Championship in Plymouth, Mich., including six of the seven Gophers. It also includes 12 members of the silver medal-winning 2014 U.S. Women's Olympic Ice Hockey Team, including Bozek, Kessel, Marvin, and Stecklein.

USA Hockey also announced today that starting in September, the players and staff for the 2017-18 U.S. Women's National Team will relocate to the Tampa area to train at Florida Hospital Center Ice in preparation for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
