The finalized U.S. squad will then depart on April 12 for the 2011 IIHF World Women’s Championship, which runs from April 16 25 in Zurich and Winterthur, Switzerland. The preliminary roster includes 27 skaters (18 forwards, nine defensemen) and three goaltenders.

Enjoying one of her best seasons at Mercyhurst, Steadman currently ranks in a tie for third in goals (15) and sixth in points (26).

She is just two shy of tying her career-high for points in a season, set at 28 during the 2009-10 campaign.  Thanks to her play, the Lakers have rolled out to a 20-5-0 record and rank in the top-5 of both national polls. Schoullis has nine goals and 18 points in 25 games with the Golden Gophers. She missed all of the 2009-10 season with a shoulder injury.
