From the article:
While representing team USA, Tetreau met and played with women who had participated in all levels of ice hockey, from collegiate programs to Olympic teams.
“It was very exciting to represent the USA on an international stage. To have kids and other players want to trade clothing so that they get something USA on it was almost surreal,” she said. “Not only did I get to represent my country but I also got to meet players from all around the world.”
