This will be the second Olympic appearance for Greiss. He played for team Germany at the 2006 Olympics where he was the youngest goaltender (20) in the tournament. His only appearance in 2006 was a 5-1 loss to Canada where he made 35 saves on 40 shots.
Greiss also represented Germany at the 2004 (Group B), 2005 and 2006 (Group B) World Junior Championships.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
