- The United States has not defeated another “Big Seven” nation (Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, Slovakia, or Sweden) in Olympic play outside North America since beating Finland 4-1 on February 13, 1992 in Albertville, France.
- When Finland’s Aleksander Barkov was born on September 2, 1995, his Sochi linemate Teemu Selanne had already scored 123 NHL goals with the Winnipeg Jets and played in the World Juniors, World Championship, Canada Cup and Olympics.
- Only two of the 36 goalies registered for these Olympics have won a Stanley Cup, Finland’s Antti Niemi (2010, Chicago Blackhawks) and the U.S.’s Jonathan Quick (2012, Los Angeles Kings).
