SUNDSVALL, Sweden – USA Hockey announced today that Presley Norby (Shorewood, Minn.), a Four Nations Cup pre-camp attendee, has replaced Emily Janiga (East Aurora, N.Y.) on the roster for the Four Nations Cup due to injury. Janiga was hurt while skating for Mercyhurst University (CHA) on Friday evening and would not be available for the tournament, which takes place November 4-8 in Sundsvall, Sweden.
"It's unfortunate that Emily was injured during her collegiate game but Presley came into camp and had a strong showing to earn the opportunity to advance onto our roster for the Four Nations Cup," said Reagan Carey, general manager of the U.S. Women's National Team. "It's a great opportunity for Presley to step in. We have full confidence in her and look forward to her contribution."
Norby, a member of the 2015 U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team, was one of four non-roster invitees at the pre-camp to help the national team prepare for the Four Nations Cup.
The U.S. Women's National Team arrived in Sundsvall, Sweden on Sunday and will open the Four Nations Cup tomorrow, November 4, against Sweden at 1 p.m. ET.
Norby, who is the youngest player (17) on the U.S. roster, is a senior at Minnetonka High School (Minn.) and has committed to play at the University of Wisconsin (WCHA) next season.
