LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The American players who skated Thursday morning weren't scheduled to play Thursday against Finland, but they did get a special treat. Joining them for practice was Meghan Duggan, a member of the U.S. national women's team.
"I'm here for two weeks working a camp and staying at the [Olympic] Training Center," she told NHL.com. "I told the director of our program that I'm going to be here and she spread word to JJ [Jim Johansson, national junior team general manager]. He grabbed me the first day I was here and said listen, Thursday, 10:45, if you want to jump out with the guys, you can. I'm just honored. USA Hockey is a big family. It was great for me to be out there."
