USA Hockey has officially unveiled it's roster for the 2022 Beijing Olympics.

The 25-man group, originally revealed by Frank Seravalli and Chris Peters from Daily Faceoff, will see 15 college players and 13 NHL prospects make up the bulk of the roster. Only one player will return from the 2018 Olympic tournament, Brian O'Neill, with eight total players holding base in Europe.

The Americans will be one of the youngest teams in the tournament thanks to its large college contingent. Matty Beniers and Jake Sanderson are among the NCAA standouts, both of whom played with the United States at the World Junior Championship in Red Deer in late December.

USA will open its Group A men's Olympic tournament on Feb. 10 at 8:10 AM ET against China.
