First, since we were talking with the athletes for the Beanpot, we asked them what the Beanpot meant to them. Here's what they had to say.
Next we talked to them about some of their best memories of playing at Harvard.
Then we talked to them about how Harvard helped to develop them for the international game.
These five players have seen a lot of each other, both at Harvard but then on the international stage. We asked what it was like to face Harvard teammates during the Olympics.
Finally, we asked all of the players for some general thoughts about the Vancouver Olympics, including what it would be like to play on Canadian soil.
We'd like to thank Team USA media relations person Christy Jeffries and Team USA members Angela Ruggiero, Julie Chu, and Caitlin Cahow, as well as Team Canada media relations person Chris Jurewicz and Team Canada members Jennifer Botterill and Sarah Vaillancourt for their time in helping us put together this feature.
