Hockey is still being played at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing next month, even though no current NHL players are involved, and on Thursday, Team USA unveiled its men’s roster.

The 14 forwards are Nick Abruzzese, Kenny Agostino, Matty Beniers, Brendan Brisson, Noah Cates, Sean Farrell, Sam Hentges, Matthew Knies, Marc McLaughlin, Ben Meyers, Andy Miele, Brian ONeill, Nick Shore and Nathan Smith.

At the back, Brian Cooper, Brock Faber, Drew Helleson, Steven Kampfer, Aaron Ness, Nick Perbix, Jake Sanderson and David Warsofsky will make up the defense corps, while Drew Commesso, Strauss Mann and Pat Nagle will make the crease for the US squad.

This group of 25 players includes 15 current NCAA players, eight European professionals and two players currently playing in the AHL.

Were excited about the roster we put together, said General Manager of the 2022 US Olympic Mens Ice Hockey Team, John Vanbiesbrouck.

The Olympics are the biggest sporting stage and it was nice to hear how much enthusiasm our players have to represent their country. We were fortunate to have a deep talent pool thanks in part to all the amazing work of our volunteers in communities across the country and with the mix of players making up our team we were looking forward to competing for a gold medal in Beijing.

With an average age of 25.1, the United States team relies on some of its younger players, such as the top Seattle candidate Kraken and 2021 second overall roster Matty Beniers, or Ottawa Senators Jake Sanderson on the blue line.

Only six players on the roster have experience playing in the NHL: Nick Shore, Kenny Agostino, Steven Kampfer, Andy Miele, Aaron Ness and David Warsofsky.

The US men will play their first Olympic game on February 10 at 8:10 a.m. ET against China.
