The American team for the Women’s World Championship that start next week will have a lot of familiar names for New England fans.
Alex Carpenter, the forward from North Reading, Mass., who also shined at Boston College, is back for another turn with the team. Also returning is forward Caroline Harvey, from Salem. N.H.
This is Carpenter’s eighth time on the Team USA roster for the Women’s World Championships. She’s also been on two Olympic squads. Harvey is skating on her second straight Women’s World Championship team for the Americans and was also a member of this year’s Olympic team.
Joining them on the 23-player roster will be several players who spent their college years in New England.
