Brianne McLaughlin is going back to the Olympics.

McLaughlin, a starting goalie for Robert Morris from 2005-09, was selected to the U.S. women's ice hockey team that will compete at the upcoming Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

McLaughlin, 26, played in one game for Team USA at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, where the Americans earned a silver medal. She has appeared in 14 international games for Team USA.

The American women are chasing their first gold since the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano, Japan.

A native of Sheffield, Ohio, McLaughlin recorded a 3.31 goals-against average and .910 save percentage over four seasons at Robert Morris. Her record was 31-79-8.

Team USA unveiled its women's Olympic roster on national TV during second intermission of the NHL's Winter Classic outdoor game at Michigan Stadium on Wednesday. The Americans open the Olympic tournament against Finland on Feb. 8.
