Best known for their “Miracle on Ice” during the 1980 Winter Olympics, on home soil in Lake Placid, USA hockey team lines have been available since the 1920 games in Belgium. Puck action was included in the Summer Olympics that year and then moved to the Winter Games in 1924. Largely amateurs in the early years, Team USA wagering odds have trended in chalk territory since NHL players joined the Olympic fray for the 1998 games in Nagano, Japan.

USA Hockey Team Record
As one the greatest accomplishments in USA international sports, Team USA defeated the Soviet Union 4-3 in the semi-final of the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. Following the “Miracle on Ice” game Team USA beat Finland to claim their second ice hockey Gold Medal. Often referred to as the “Forgotten Miracle” the USA Men’s team first struck Gold during the 1960 Olympics.
With the addition of NHL players, to the 1998 Olympics, Team USA has been near or within the top five Nations in the world. While Canada and Russia also benefited from the addition of pro players, the impact on Team USA was greater as they could move away from depending on NCAA and American Hockey League players. The result is the USA being a top contender in Olympic play.
Being able to draw from a deep pool of talented National Hockey League players is the greatest strength of the USA Men’s hockey team. The squad assembled for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey is a solid example of that. That team featured NHL goaltenders Ben Bishop and Jonathan Quick, defensemen John Carlson and Ryan McDonagh, plus forwards Patrick Kane and Joe Pavelski.
Team USA earned a Bronze Medal in the 2013 and 2015 Ice Hockey World Championships to go along with the Sliver Medal they won during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
