International record (W-L-T)

The American women's national ice hockey team is controlled by USA Hockey. The United States has been, by far, one of the top two most dominant women's hockey team in international play, having won gold or silver in almost every major tournament. The exception where they won neither gold nor silver is the 2006 Winter Olympics, where they won bronze. The U.S. has 59,506 female players at 2009.[1] The head coach is Mark Johnson.

In 1998, the Women's Olympic Hockey Team was named the USOC Team of the Year.
