2010 U.S. Women's Under-18 Select Team Named




Team to Participate in Women's National Festival, Under-18 Series

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Hockey today announced the 21-player 2010 U.S. Women's Under-18 Select Team, which will participate in both the 2010 USA Hockey Women's National Festival and the 2010 Under-18 Series.


The Women's National Festival will run from August 13-21 at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, N.Y., with the Under-18 Series taking place in the same location from August 18-21. The Under-18 Series, now in its fourth year, is a three-game competition between the United States and Canada.


Highlighting the roster are five members of the U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team that captured the silver medal at the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation World Women's U18 Championship this past April, including forwards Alex Carpenter (North Reading, Mass.), Amanda Pelkey (Montpelier, Vt.) and Haley Skarupa (Rockville, Md.); and defensemen Emily Pfalzer (Getzville, N.Y.) and Michelle Picard (Taunton, Mass.). Pelkey also helped Team USA capture the gold medal at the 2009 IIHF World Women's U18 Championship.


The five veterans, along with defenseman Milica McMillen (St. Paul, Minn.) and forward Taylor Kuehl (Minnetrista, Minn.), also played in the 2009 Under-18 Series.


The remaining 14 players will be making their Team USA debuts, including goaltenders Shenae Lundberg (Peterborough, N.H.) and Megan Miller (Long Grove, Ill.); defensemen Amanda Boulier (Watertown, Conn.), Courtney Burke (Albany, N.Y.), Briana Mastel (Wallingford, Conn.) and Lee Stecklein (Roseville, Minn.); and forwards Hannah Brandt (Vadnais Heights, Minn.), Demi Crossman (Livonia, Mich.), Shiann Darkangelo (Brighton, Mich.), Emily Field (Littleton, Mass.), Layla Marvin (Warroad, Minn.), Anne Pankowski (Laguna Hills, Calif.), Paige Savage (Carrollton, Texas) and Karley Sylvester (Warroad, Minn.).
The U.S. squad will open Under-18 Series play on August 18 at 4 p.m. EDT at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid.
