In 2018, the United States Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team defeated Canada 3-2 in a shootout to win the gold medal in South Korea, now, 13 members of that team have been selected to represent the United States again in the upcoming 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
The roster was announced on January 1, 2022, and is highlighted by the return of forwards Hilary Knight and Kendall Coyne Schofield.
"Naming an Olympic team is always a momentous occasion and we're thrilled to take this next step on our journey," 2022 United States women's hockey general manager Katie Million said, via the NHL.
