USA Hockey returns nine forwards, two defensemen and two goalies from the 2010 USA Olympic hockey team for Sochi in 2014. It's a veteran group with tremendous skill and impressive two-way ability.
The American team is built to face the Canadians, with goaltending, speed and skill at the forefront. The U.S. will also need to be aware of the Russians, who are also skilled and will be very tough on their home soil.
There are 14 forwards, eight defensemen and three goalies named to the USA team. Here's how they're doing as they get closer to the Sochi Olympics.
