Winter Olympics 2022: US Women’s Hockey Set to Defend Gold Medal

Kendall Coyne Schofield and Hilary Knight of Team USA

BLAINE, Minn. — One day in early December, two months before the 2022 Winter Olympics, the U.S. women’s national hockey team hits the ice to practice with a purpose. A playlist of “Walking in a Winter Wonderland,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and other holiday classics blasts from the track’s speakers. A camera crew from NBC is on hand to capture the scene, as are several GoPros mounted on Team USA’s helmets. During a 3-on-0 drill, players who don’t score must stop, dive and roll like a pseudo-punishment, after which everyone inevitably appears covered in snow and smiling.
