Author:

WITH NHL players prohibited from playing in PyeongChang, South Korea, Team USA will have to rely on a bunch of relative no-names. But those expecting a Miracle on Ice sequel will be disappointed. Among the few high-scoring Americans playing abroad are BROC LITTLE, a former Yale winger who finished second in points in the Swedish Elite League last season, and defenseman and former Hobey Baker winner Matt Gilroy, who had 38 points in the KHL. The next potential Jim Craig? Check in on the nets in Boston, where the goalies at BU (Jake Oettinger), BC (Joseph Woll) and Harvard (Merrick Madsen) will be strong Olympic team candidates.
