News release from USA Hockey: (March 1994)

USA Hockey has announced the roster of players named to the 1994 US Women's National Team (posted earlier to H-L), which will compete in the 1994 International Ice Hockey Federation Women's World Ice Hockey Championship, set for April 11-17 in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The 20-person US roster features nine players who competed in both the 1990 and 1992 IIHF Championships: Beth Beagan, Lisa Brown, Cindy Curley, Cammi Granato, Sue Merz, Jeanine Sobek, Shawna Davidson, Kelly O'Leary and Kelly Dyer.

Granato helped lead the USA to second place finishes in both champion- ships. She was all-tournament in 1992 after scoring 10 points on 8 goals and 2 assists in five games.

"Our roster has a nice blend of veteran players with world-level experience and fast-rising newcomers," said Karen Kay (UNH), head coach of the 1994 Team USA. "I like the overall balance we have with this team. Our goal is simple: we want to improve upon the silver medal finishes of 1990 and 1992 by winning the gold this year. There is no question we have our work cut out for us. There are a number of strong teams (Canada, Finland) capable of challenging for medals."

US goaltenders Erin Whitten and Kelly Dyer were both on the 1992 team. Whitten made history on Oct. 30, 1993 when, as a member of the ECHL's Toledo Storm, she became the first woman goaltender ever to win a pro- fessional ice hockey game, posting a 6-5 victory over the Dayton Bombers. Whitten currently plays for the CHL's Dallas Freeze.

The field for the 1994 Women's World Championship includes Canada (the two-time defending world champion), Sweden, Norway and China in Pool A, along with Finland, Germany, Switzerland and the USA in Pool B.
