U.S. Women's National Team Named For 2012 Four Nations Cup

“We’ve got a terrific team assembled to compete in the Four Nations Cup,” said Katey Stone (Arlington, Mass.), head coach of Team USA. “I feel this tournament will provide an excellent gauge of where we are as a team as we continue to evaluate players and progress toward the 2014 Olympics.”

Among the 12 Olympians are Julie Chu (Fairfield, Conn.), who has not only played in three Olympic Winter Games, but also in 10 previous Four Nations Cups. Others include defensemen Kacey Bellamy (Westfield, Mass.), Lisa Chesson (Plainfield, Ill.), and Gigi Marvin (Warroad, Minn.); forwards Meghan Duggan (Danvers, Mass.), Hilary Knight (Sun Valley, Idaho), Jocelyne Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.), Monique Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.), Kelli Stack (Brooklyn Heights, Ohio), and Karen Thatcher (Blaine, Wash.); and goaltenders Molly Schaus (Natick, Mass.) and Jessie Vetter (Cottage Grove, Wis.).

“From the veteran Olympians to the newcomers, we are confident in this team's ability to give our program a great start to the 2012-2013 season,” said Reagan Carey (Colorado Springs, Colo.), director of women’s hockey.

Prior to the start of the Four Nations Cup, the team will participate in a training camp at the New York Rangers’ Madison Square Garden Training Facility in Tarrytown, N.Y., from Oct. 30 - Nov. 4.

The camp will include 12 players from the team headed to the Four Nations Cup and select skaters from the 2012 U.S. Women's Under-18 Select Team player pool. At the conclusion of the camp, the 11 NCAA players who complete the U.S. roster will meet the rest of the team in Finland.

Team USA opens Four Nations Cup play on Nov. 6 against Sweden at 4 p.m. local time at the Tikkurila Valtti Arena in Vantaa, Finland.
