Who Holds the Most Important Records for Team USA Women’s Olympics Hockey?

Interest in hockey is continuously on the rise throughout the United States. And it isn’t just any one league that accounts for the uptick in fandom and engagement. Popularity is climbing at all levels.

From the NHL to the Premier Hockey Federation (PHF), which was formerly known as the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL), there has never been a larger base of supporters, followers or media coverage for hockey in the U.S. It is now even common for all the best sports betting sites to carry gambling options for not only every league, but also every type of format—standalone games, futures, props, etc.

Perhaps no single hockey entity, though, has seen a more dramatic increase in their popularity than the U.S. Women’s Olympics team. That much became clear during the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. 

The United States didn’t take home the gold, but they made it all the way to the gold medal round itself, and they nearly beat Team Canada, which has historically been a powerhouse in international play. It was a huge step forward for the women’s hockey program—proof that the USA’s crop of talent isn’t merely on the rise, but has officially arrived.
