The United States women's hockey team went for their second consecutive gold medal at the 2022 Winter Olympics but fell short of  their goal. The American women won the gold medal with a 3-2 victory over Canada in the gold medal game at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, but fell to Canada, 3-2, in the final in Beijing.

The United States women's team returned several of its star players, including Hillary Knight and Kendall Coyne Schofield. Knight joined Jenny Potter, Angela Ruggiero and Julie Chu as the only American women in USA Hockey history to be named to four Olympic teams.
