Following the Bridgestone Winter Classic, Team USA announced their 25-man roster for the olympics in Sochi, Russia. Joe Pavelski, the 29-year-old forward, will be making his 2nd appearance for Team USA in February.
Honestly, this comes as no surprise because Joe Pavelski is currently in the middle of one of his best scoring years. So far, he has tallied 16 goals and 21 assists. He is second on the team in goals behind Patrick Marleau’s 17.
In his last appearance in a USA sweater, Pavelski had 3 assists in 6 games back in Vancouver in 2010. They ended up with a silver medal.
Here is the full roster for Team USA:
