The identities of the 21 talented ladies who will represent the nation as part of the 2014 U.S. women's Olympic ice hockey team were officially revealed during the second intermission of the 2014 NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 1, ending considerable long-term speculation over who would make the cut.

Headed to the Sochi Winter Games in February are a trio of goaltenders, including the Burlington Barracudas' Brianne McLaughlin, the Boston Blades' Molly Schaus, and the Oregon Outlaws' Jessie Vetter.

Seven defensemen also made the cut, including the following:

  • Kacey Bellamy
  • Megan Bozek
  • Gigi Marvin
  • Michelle Picard
  • Josephine Pucci
  • Anne Schleper
  • Lee Stecklein

The 2014 Olympic roster is rounded out by 11 forwards, including twin sisters Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux; Amanda Kessel, sister of 2014 men's Olympic hockey team member Phil Kessel; and the following:

  • Alex Carpenter
  • Kendall Coyne
  • Julie Chu
  • Brianna Decker
  • Meghan Duggan
  • Lyndsey Fry
  • Hilary Knight
  • Kelli Stack

The U.S. women fared well at the 2010 Vancouver Games, taking the silver medal behind host nation Canada. Eleven members of the 2014 squad, including all three goalies, will compete in Sochi.

Jocelyne Lamoureux expressed the sentiments of many of the women on the team with a Jan. 1 tweet to fans that read "Excited to represent the United States in Sochi, proud to put on the jersey and go to battle with this group!"

Women's Olympic ice hockey action in Sochi is set to begin Feb. 8.
