Bio: In his fourth NHL season, McDonagh has blossomed with the New York Rangers. An outstanding defender, he is on pace for his best offensive season and is asserting himself as a leader as well. McDonagh can play plenty of minutes in all situations and impressed the Olympic selection committee early in the process. He was Minnesota’s Mr. Hockey in 2007 and led Cretin-Derham Hall to a state title as a junior.

Olympic experience: Second (2010)

Twitter handle: @APottinger

Bio: In 2010, Pottinger was on the U.S. women’s team that finished in 10th place at the Vancouver Games. She formed her own team to chase an Olympic berth in Sochi and made it to the finals of the Olympic trials, where her team was defeated by the Erika Brown rink. A day later, Team Brown asked Pottinger to join it as alternate. Pottinger is a mother of two, works at General Mills and is a 10-time national champion.

DEREK STEPAN

Age: 23

Height/weight: 6-0, 196

Position: Forward

Olympic experience: First

Twitter handle: @DerekStepan21

Bio: After getting off to a slow start this season, Stepan was worried about making the Olympic team. His playmaking abilities and strong two-way play secured his spot. The fourth-year center for the Rangers has improved steadily through his NHL career and is rounding into form after missing training camp and preseason play because of a contract dispute. He also has performed well internationally, leading the U.S. to a gold medal at the 2010 world junior championships.
