Eight individuals with University of Michigan ties will represent their countries at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, with former Wolverine ice hockey players Carl Hagelin (Sweden), Brian Lebler (Austria) and Max Pacioretty (United States) joined by five American ice dancers -- pairs Meryl Davis-Charlie White and Maia Shibutani-Alex Shibutani as well as Evan Bates -- who have attended U-M.

Hagelin, Lebler and Pacioretty will all be making their Olympic debuts in Sochi. They were teammates on the 2007-08 Michigan team that finished the season 33-6-4 and reached the Frozen Four.

Hagelin, a four-year Michigan letterman (2008-11), is in his third NHL season with the New York Rangers and is among the team leaders in goals and game-winning goals despite missing most of October with a shoulder injury.

Pacioretty, the 2008 CCHA Rookie of the Year in his lone season at Michigan, is in his sixth NHL season with the Montreal Canadiens and leads the team in goals, power-play goals and game-winners.

Lebler, who earned four letters at U-M (2007-10), is in his third season with Linz EHC in the Austrian Hockey League (Erste Bank Eishockey Liga) and leads the team in scoring.

Davis and White were silver medalists at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and will be making their second appearance in the Olympics. They have claimed six straight U.S. championships and are two-time world champions.

The Shibutani siblings won the bronze at the 2014 U.S. National Championships to earn their first Olympics berth. Bates, who skated at Vancouver in 2010 with U-M graduate Emily Samuelson, will be returning to the Olympics with a new partner (Madison Chock), with whom he finished second at nationals.
