Meet Team USA's youngest and oldest Winter Olympians

Meet Team USA's youngest and oldest Winter Olympians

"You're laying it on the line in the Olympics", said Cam Fowler, who was on the U.S. team in 2014. With Russia (or the Olympic Athletes from Russia) being the odds-on favorites to win gold in the men's tournament, let's jump right in to the greatest moments in the history of Olympic ice hockey.

The 2002 Salt Lake City Games, when Canada captured its first Olympic gold medal in women's hockey, inspired a nine-year-old Saulnier. "When you hear it from Jonathan Toews, when you hear it from guys who are the top player on their own team, and then they join the Olympic team and kill penalties or block shots, do things that is not necessarily their role, it hits home".

Canada finished that series stronger than it started. The league doesn't want to do that, and yet it sends teams to China.

"You look at the rosters of some of the teams, obviously they've got some great players", Gionta said. I didn't want to leave home; I was a bit of a homebody. But the Russians have stars Ilya Kovalchuk and Pavel Datsyuk, and the U.S. has 10 players - including all three goalies - who haven't played in the NHL.

The United States and Canada square off in women's hockey Feb. 15, and to paraphrase the late Keith Jackson, "These teams plain don't like each other". "It says that our game isn't as regional as it used to be, so I think that's a positive thing: players coming from all over the place".

Is there a fear that Canada cannot win gold without input from Pearn?

"JD was probably the better athlete in the family, but yeah, no matter whether we were playing hockey or football or rock, paper, scissors, whatever the case was, we always wanted to win, so I think that's really allowed us to continue to work hard and have the success that we've had up to this point", Greenway said. He shared with his fans the struggles and uncertainty that he was facing in an emotional Instagram post: "I am young, ambitious, hungry, and motivated".

The Canadian women meanwhile have an immense amount of momentum heading into the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

At 37, he's one of the team's elder statesmen and has the wisdom and perspective that comes with experience. I find myself alone and I think about the game.

Ann-Renee Desbiens made 18 saves and earned her first shutout of the tournament.

Granato's background in and passion for USA Hockey means something to the current players.

"Definitely one of the best games I ever played in", Kesler said. But a handful have reached or held on to elite status in their respective disciplines years earlier or later than their peers.

Canada, which features former Badgers players Rene Bourque at forward and Cody Goloubef on defense, and Sweden are perennial powers, regardless of whether NHL players are involved. "At the same time we've got to make sure we're pulling the others along and that they're starting to challenge us more and more", said Davidson.

"I think we can compete with any of them", he said.

Wust could also become only the second Dutch athlete to successfully defend an Olympic title since the legendary Sven Kramer's back-to-back golds at 5000m in 2010 and 2014. In the IIHF rankings Finland is third, Russia fourth and Sweden fifth. "It's been a long road but that moment made it worth it". Raty is a two-time NCAA champion with the Minnesota Golden Gophers and is playing in her fourth Olympics. Greenway told CNN before traveling to this year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Picking-and-choosing which sport to watch falls to a number of factors - When is it on?

Granato already has some pages written in his Olympics story.
