COLORADO SPRINGS, USA – USA Hockey announced the 41 players invited to its U.S. Women's National Team Selection Camp that will take place at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, New York, June 16-23.

The camp, which will consist of daily practices, off-ice testing, and three intrasquad scrimmages, will be used to determine the U.S. Women's National Team roster that will train together and participate in various competitions in the build-up to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

USA Hockey will unveil the players selected to the U.S. Women's National Team on June 24 and that group will continue to train in Lake Placid until June 27.

The final 21-player U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team roster is expected to be announced in late December 2013.

The 41 players selected to the U.S. Women's National Team Selection Camp includes 12 Olympians. All 23 players from the U.S. Women's National Team that captured the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship in Ottawa will be taking part in the camp.

Jincy Dunne will be the youngest player on the roster at 16-years old at the time of the camp, while Julie Chu will be the oldest at 31. Seven players will be vying for their first opportunity to represent the U.S.

Reagan Carey, USA Hockey's director of women's hockey, will be overseeing the camp and is serving as the general manager of the 2014 Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team. Katey Stone, head women’s ice hockey coach at Harvard University, is the head coach of the U.S. Women's National Team and will also serve as the head coach of the 2014 U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team. She will be the first female head coach to lead the U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team.
