PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College women's ice hockey Assistant Coach Karen Thatcher has been selected to play for the US National Team next month at the Four Nation's Cup. The prestigious international tournament will take place November 9-13 in Nyköping, Sweden.

Thatcher is one of 22 players selected to compete for Team USA against Canada, Sweden and Finland.

The Festival is the latest in a long line of national team appearances on Thatcher's resume. Most recently, the Franklin, Mass. native was named to the preliminary roster for the Team USA contingent in the 2011 World Championships. Last year, she was a driving force in the US Olympic Team's silver-medal winning performance, contributing six points in five games in Vancouver.

A 2006 graduate of Providence College, Thatcher is one of the most decorated players in Friar history. Her collegiate resume includes two Hockey East Championships, an All-America honor, and a Hockey East Co-Player of the Year accolade.
