Julie Chu heads U.S. team roster

Three-time Olympian Julie Chu leads the 25-player roster for the U.S. women's national hockey team that will train together leading up to next year's 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The lineup was announced Monday after a week-long camp in Lake Placid, N.Y. The final 21-player roster that will compete in the Games is expected to be announced in late December.

"We had a tremendous camp with our country's best players and faced some very difficult decisions," U.S. national team general manager Reagan Carey said in a statement. "We thank everyone for their dedication and congratulate those that made the team."

Chu was the one of the youngest members of the team that won the silver medal in Salt Lake City. She won bronze in Turin and, after finishing at Harvard, won silver in Vancouver.

Defenseman Jincy Dunne, 16, is the youngest member of the roster, which has 12 former Olympians (including Chu).

"It's an honor to be on this team," Dunne said during a live online broadcast of Monday's announcement. "There are a lot of veterans here to show me what to do and how to do it. … I can't complain at all."

Harvard's Katey Stone is the coach.
