The U.S. hockey team's Olympic orientation camp next month is expected to be full of newcomers.

Winning at the 2014 Winter Olympics is still the goal, but the U.S. is willing to give younger players a chance.

Alex Galchenyuk of the Montreal Canadiens, Jake Gardiner of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Jacob Trouba of the Winnipeg Jets will at least get a taste of Olympic life next month, even if they don't make it to the final roster for the Sochi Games in February

Zach Parise and Ryan Suter of the Minnesota Wild were those young players in Vancouver in 2010, and now they're expected to be two of the best on the team.
