How to watch the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey online for free

0

Ice hockey is arguably one of the most popular sports every four years at the Winter Olympic Games. This year, however, the field is going to be much different. In December, the NHL announced that its players would not be allowed to represent their home-nations at the global tournament. While there may be some unfamiliarity with the players on the ice, there is an added level of suspense for all nations, including the Americans.

The ice hockey portion of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics will take place from Wednesday, February 2 through Sunday, February 20 at the National Indoor Stadium.

Who is On the USA Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey team

With no NHL players allowed to participate in the 2022 Winter Games, the United States and the other nations have no lack of places to pull talent from. When Team USA announced the men’s squad last month, they noted that 15 players are current NCAA athletes, while eight are European professionals and two others from the AHL.

As there is no major professional league interfering with the eligibility of players on the women’s side, the team is much more what one would typically expect as they look to defend their gold medal. Per the team, 15 of the 23 players on the roster have played in the Olympics before, including Hilary Knight who has made her fourth roster at the games.

How Many Gold Medals Does the USA Have in Ice Hockey

The men’s ice hockey team has just two gold medals while picking up eight silver medals and one bronze. It has been 42 years since the last gold medal for the Americans, which was the iconic “Miracle On Ice” campaign. The American men haven’t medaled at the games since 2010, already three Olympics ago.

Fortunes for the women on the ice has been a much different story. Coming off of the program’s second gold medal win, the women have medaled in each of their six appearances in the Winter Games. Team USA won gold at their first-ever games in 1998 and have three silver medals and a bronze to their record.

Who Won the Medals in Ice Hockey Dicipline in 2018?

The USA’s women’s ice hockey team won the team’s second gold medal in 2018 at the Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics. To take the top spot on the podium, they edged out Canada while Finland defeated the Olympic Athletes from Russia to take bronze. With the American men finishing in seventh place, the podium was filled by the Olympic Athletes from Russia who earned the gold medal in the final against Germany, followed by Canada who grabbed the bronze medal.
