Moorhead native Borgen selected to US Olympic hockey team

Moorhead native Borgen selected to US Olympic hockey team”

The U.S. unveiled its roster for the men's Olympic Hockey team on Monday.

Former Yalie Brian O'Neill will represent the U.S.at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Under the direction of head coach Robb Stauber, who played for the University of Minnesota from 1986 to 1989, the 2017-18 U.S. Women's National Team has been centralized in the Tampa area training at Florida Hospital Center Ice in preparation for the 2018 Olympic Games since September.

"It's a tremendous feeling to represent team US at the Olympics". Team USA is competing in Group A alongside Canada, Finland and Russian Federation, and will open the competition Sunday, Feb. 11 against Finland.

Other notables on the roster are Ted Donato, a junior forward at Harvard, former Harvard defenseman Noah Welch and Brian Gionta, a Stanley Cup victor with the Devils in 2003 who'll serve as team captain. So the US roster is mostly comprised of Americans playing professionally overseas.

The decision was also about money, as NPR's Camila Domonoske reported: "The International Olympic Committee has previously paid for players to travel to the Olympics, and covered their insurance costs". They also prevented any player with an active NHL contract from going - meaning players from the league will not attend the games for the first time since 1994.

Arcobello played at Fairfield Prep and was a second-team All-American at Yale as a junior in 2009. He played in the KHL in the 2016-17 season. Terry is the Pioneers' second-leading scorer with 25 points (eight goals) and ranks ninth nationally. In 2015, he won an AHL championship with Manchester and was named league MVP. The OAR team could be the heavy favorite in the tournament, but the KHL hasn't announced whether it will send players yet and the IIHF said it will determine the status of the OAR hockey teams by January 27. He's been in Europe nearly exclusively since leaving New Haven, leading the Swedish pro league in scoring in 2015. In 2006, Gionta led Team U.S.A. with four goals in six games in the Torino, Italy games.
