Goalies David Leggio and Brandon Maxwell were named the final two players on the 25-man U.S. Olympic hockey team.

The rest of the Olympic team was named on New Year’s Day -- roster here.

The two goalies are expected to back up the one goalie named to the team last week -- Ryan Zapolski.

None have NHL regular-season game experience.

Zapolski, 31, plays for a Helsinki club in the Russian KHL.

Leggio, 33, plays in the German League. Maxwell, 26, plays in the Czech League.

All three goalies were on the U.S. roster for its only pre-Olympic tournament -- the Deutschland Cup in Germany in November.

The Americans went 0-3 at the Deutschland Cup but outshot Slovakia, Russia and Germany by a combined 95 to 60.
