Grahame to Start for Team USA

Lake Superior State University alumnus John Grahame (1994-97) has been named the starting goaltender for the United States Olympic team for Wednesday’s opener against Latvia.

Grahame was not even invited to the Olympic orientation camp in September, but was named to the team after Ryan Miller was sidelined much of the first half of the NHL season with a broken thumb.

USA head coach Peter Laviolette and general manager Don Waddell have said that player performance during the first half of the NHL season would determine the makeup of the team and determine who plays during the Olympics. Grahame has posted a 22-15-1 record, 2.68 goals-against-average, and .904 save percentage this season. Grahame also was one of two American players who made it to Italy on Monday, with the rest of the team not arriving in Torino until Tuesday. Grahame has also recorded a 7-2 record in January including 4 shutouts, and a 1.86 GAA and .934 SV%.
