U.S. Won’t Use NHL Players in Olympics

From Staff and Wire Reports

College players and foreign-based pros, not NHL players, will be used on the 1992 U.S. Olympic hockey team, USA Hockey announced Tuesday.

Olympic Coach Dave Peterson said USA Hockey doesn’t expect many, if any, NHL players to be available for the Olympics, but that the pool of college and European-based professionals gives the U.S. “the largest talent pool we’ve ever had.”
