RStarr watched the broadcast and shared this from an interview with USA Coach Katey Stone:
Katey says that Decker and Schelper, despite making a jump from U18 to the Senior team, do not look out of place in the least. She sounds encouraging about their future with the National Team.

USA Today has a nice feature on Jessie Vetter today!

Next up: Team USA and Team Canada face off on Thursday at 6PM CST.
