The U.S. women’s hockey team won’t have to worry about playing a semifinal game against Sweden without their oldest player Julie Chu, as the Associated Press reports that she’ll fight through a left hand injury.
Chu is the only member of the team above 30 at age 31. She first appeared on the Olympic level in 2002. She owns two silver medals (2002, 2010) and a bronze in 2006.
