Woodcroft was part of the Swedish coaching staff also during the junior WC last winter and has worked with Tre Kronor before.

He was part of Rikard Grönborg's staff when Sweden won World Cup gold in 2017 and was part of the team management during the World Cup in Toronto 2016.

- It is an enormous honor to be invited to help with coaching during this winter's Olympics and I appreciate the support from our players, leaders and the competition organization, says Woodcroft according to Vermont's university organization.

- The opportunity to grow and learn from the best in the world is something that I know will benefit Vermont's men's hockey for many years to come.

I am very grateful for this opportunity, the 49-year-old continues.

Men's Olympic hockey will be decided in Beijing on February 4-20, 2022.
