As sports organizations and notable hockey figures express support of the U.S. women's team, several players say they rejected overtures from USA Hockey to serve as replacements for the upcoming world championships.
Two players told The Associated Press on Friday that USA Hockey reached out to them to gauge their interest for the worlds, which begin next week in Plymouth, Michigan.
Brittany Ott, a goaltender for the Boston Pride of the National Women's Hockey League, and Annie Pankowski, a junior forward at the University of Wisconsin, said the email from USA Hockey was not an invitation but rather an inquiry about their availability.
"I responded to that email and I said I'm not willing," Pankowski said.
