  • Two Chicago area women on Olympic hockey team

    Chicago Tribune - 01/01/2014

    Two Chicago area players were named Wednesday to the 21-member U.S. Olympic women’s hockey team that has become the favorite to win the gold medal next month in Sochi, Russia.

    They are forward Kendall Coyne of Palos Heights, a Northeastern University junior, and high-scoring defenseman Megan Bozek of Buffalo Grove, who won NCAA titles at Minnesota her junior and senior years.

    They are among the 10 Olympic rookies on the roster, although both Bozek and Coyne were members of the U.S. team that beat defending Olympic champion Canada in the 2013 World Championships.

    Team USA has beaten Canada four straight times in exhibition games since Dec. 12.

    Coyne, 21, a Sandburg High School grad, played two seasons for Northeastern University before taking this year off to be with the national team.
