The Americans perhaps the deepest team at the Olympics, except maybe at the centre position, with Canada boasting Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby, Nathan MacKinnon, Brayden Point, and John Tavares.

Despite the tough competition, Kane believed USA Hockey had a solid chance of winning a gold medal.
"I just think in general, for USA Hockey, we would've put together a pretty competitive team, and that's disappointing," Kane said. "I don't think that'll change four years from now, but would've been fun to have that opportunity and welcome the next generation of USA hockey players and be able to be part of that."
Kane is upset he won't be able to play alongside Auston Matthews:
"We stay in touch throughout the season and got a lot of respect for him as a player, how good he is at scoring goals, his shot, just his overall game," Kane said of Matthews, NBC Sports Chicago's Charlie Roumeliotis reports.
"He's become one of the best players in the league, so would've been huge to have that type of player on the U.S. team and maybe get a chance to play with him as well. Hopefully, we can get a chance to play together in the future, another big tournament, and have that opportunity."
Kane can still compete in the Olympics in 2026, he will be 37.
