Gionta, who during his 17-year professional career captained both the Montreal Canadiens and Buffalo Sabres, will assume the same role in South Korea.

NEW HAVEN - The U.S. Olympic hockey coaching staff has seen its share of Yale representation over the years.

Team USA play their first game against Slovenia on February 14.

USA Hockey announced its roster for the 2018 Olympics during Monday's Winter Classic, and while there is no shortage of great stories surrounding the athletes chosen to compete in PyeongChang, one stood out. In 2006, Gionta led Team U.S.A. with four goals in six games in the Torino, Italy games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has said the decisions "must be a huge disappointment for the players" - but for Butler and others it presents a wonderful opportunity. Today, he remains the Eagles' all-time leading goal scorer (123 goals) and ranks second in points (232 points). It's generally expected that they will send a team to Pyeongchang. They also prevented any player with an active NHL contract from going - meaning players from the league will not attend the games for the first time since 1994. At just 18 years and 11 months of age, she is the youngest player on the 2018 United States of America.

Shah Rukh Khan's Zero: Could You Spot Katrina Kaif In Film Teaser?
By the way the film is produced by Gauri Khan, directed by Anand L Rai and it is scheduled to release on December 21. The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Pooja Hegde and Saqib Saleem.

Gionta will be team captain for the Americans after ending his National Hockey League career at the end of last season.

While teams representing the United States have been a "who's who" of hockey in recent years, the 2018 roster will feature a roster of "who's that?" more than anything. Flanagan has a ways to go to catch up to Keller, but is ninth among all Eagles defensemen in points, eighth in goals, and 11th in assists.

Greenwich's Sean Backman, a 2010 Yale graduate playing in the German pro league, was on the USA roster for the Deutschland Cup but did not make the final cut. "There's a lot of great leadership on the team with Gionta being our captain." . He was a All-NCHC Rookie Team selection in the 2015-16 season, and selected on the 2017 All-NCHC Academic team.

Neither Team U.S.A.'s men nor women have won an Olympic gold medal in the 21st century.
