Eleven returning Olympians are on the roster for the women’s hockey team that will represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics.

The roster was announced during the break between periods of the NHL’s Winter Classic.

Julie Chu is heading to her fourth Olympics. She’ll be looking for a gold medal to go with the two silvers and a bronze she’s already got. Canada has won the last three Olympics titles.

Also making the team was Amanda Kessel, the sister of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel. Phil Kessel was playing in the Winter Classic and hoping to make the U.S. men’s team that was to be introduced after the game.

The U.S. men’s Olympic hockey team is also set, and Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan will not be going to the Sochi Games.

The 2010 Olympian was perhaps the most surprising omission on the 25-man roster revealed Wednesday after the Winter Classic.

Jimmy Howard, who couldn’t help Detroit beat Toronto on Wednesday in a shootout, appears to be the Americans’ third goaltender behind Jonathan Quick and Ryan Miller.

At the Sochi Games, the U.S. forwards will be: David Backes, Dustin Brown, Ryan Callahan, Patrick Kane, Ryan Kesler, Phil Kessel, T.J. Oshie, Max Pacioretty, Zach Parise, Joe Pavelski, Paul Stastny, Derek Stepan, James van Riemsdyk and Blake Wheeler. John Carlson, Justin Faulk, Cam Fowler, Paul Martin, Ryan McDonagh, Brooks Orpik, Kevin Shattenkirk and Ryan Suter will be on defense for the Americans.
