A member of the gold-medal-winning U.S. national teams that competed at both the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship and the 2015 IIHF U18 Men's World Championship, Jordan Greenway is no stranger to international ice hockey. His three goals and five assists at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship earned him recognition as one of Team USA's three-best players from the tournament, as selected by coaches. A junior forward at Boston University, he played two seasons (2013-15) with USA Hockey's National Team Development Program and is a 2015 NHL Draft choice of the Minnesota Wild. Should he be selected to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team, the PyeongChang Games will mark the first Olympic berth for Greenway.

PyeongChang Preview
Seeking his first Olympic berth in 2018, Troy Terry is a junior forward for the University of Denver Pioneers, where last April he helped the school capture the NCAA Division I national championship. Just three months prior to that, he became the story of the hockey world with his shootout dramatics in helping the U.S. win the gold medal at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship. He scored three straight shootout goals – including the decisive tally – to help the U.S. defeat Russia in the semifinals, and then netted the lone goal in the gold-medal shootout against Canada to propel the U.S. to victory. He also was part of Team USA's gold-medal-winning team at the 2015 IHIF U18 Men's World Championship. Drafted by the NHL's Anaheim Ducks in 2015, he skated one season with USA Hockey's National Team Development Program (2014-15).

Tony Granato | Head Coach
Hometown: Madison, Wisconsin
Olympic Experience: 1998 (forward), 2014 (assistant coach), 2018 (head coach)

PyeongChang Preview
While Tony Granato is the head coach of the U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team for the first time, he is no stranger to international competition. The Downers Grove, Illinois, native was an assistant coach for the 2014 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team and played for Team USA in seven international competitions, including the 1988 Olympic Winter Games, the 1991 Canada Cup, three IIHF Men's World Championships (1985, 1986, 1987) and two IIHF World Junior Championships (1983, 1984). Currently, the head men's ice hockey coach at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin, Granato spent 13 seasons as either a head coach or assistant coach in the NHL, one year after retiring from a 13-year NHL playing career. A four-time 30-goal scorer in the NHL, he skated for the New York Rangers (1988-90), Los Angeles Kings (1990-96) and San Jose Sharks (1996-01), before coaching with the Colorado Avalanche (2002-2009), Pittsburgh Penguins (2009-14) and Detroit Red Wings (2014-16). Under his direction – and consistent with previous Olympic years – the 2018 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team will gather as a group for the first time on Feb. 10 in South Korea, marking the first time since 1994 that the roster will not be populated by NHL players.
