U.S.A. Women's Olympic Roster

For Team U.S.A. they come into Vancouver 2010 as the defending Bronze Medalist and it marked the first time in the Women's Olympic Hockey Tournament History where U.S.A. and Canada didn't play each other for the Championship.

The USA will be favorites to win the group and get back to the final, but the Women's field is getting deeper all the time and it's getting tougher with Olympic Tournament and Women's World Championship.

This time, the USA will face Finland, Russia and China as they are expected to get by Russia and China, but the challenge will come in Finland as they will look to get back on the Medal Podium since finishing 3rd in 1998.
