USA Hockey has announced the players that will be attending the 2018 U.S. Women’s National Team Evaluation Camp in Maine from Sept. 13-17.

The 37-player roster includes 18 members of the 2018 U.S. Olympic team that captured gold in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

“We are excited to welcome 37 highly skilled players from across the country to the 2018 U.S. Women’s National Team Evaluation Camp,” USA Hockey director of women’s hockey Reagan Carey said in a press release. “The roster contains a mix of veteran players who’ve played at the highest level for Team USA, as well as some emerging talent from the NCAA and professional leagues that we’re excited to see come and compete.”
