History[edit]

At the 2017 ISBHF Worlds, the US earned their first-ever podium finish. In the semifinals, they defeated the two-time defending champion gold medalists Canada in a 3-2 tally.[1] Becky Dobson would be credited with the game-winning goal. [2] Advancing to the gold medal game against host country Czech Republic, the US forced overtime, although the result was a 4-3 loss. [3]

Of note, the 2017 United States roster also featured three players from the NWHL. Among them were Cherie Stewart, who played in the inaugural season of the New York Riveters, Amber Moore, another Riveters alum, plus Paige Harrington, who captured the 2017 Isobel Cup championship as a member of the Buffalo Beauts.
