Resor Returns from Four Nations Cup with Silver Medal

Nov. 11, 2007

LEKSAND, Sweden - Yale junior defenseman Helen Resor (Greenwich, Conn.) earned a silver medal with Team USA at the Four Nations Cup in Leksand, Sweden. The U.S. fell to Canada 2-0 in the gold medal game Nov. 11.

Team USA finished the tournament in second place with a 2-0-0-2 record. Resor picked up one assist in the 4-0 win over Sweden to open the tournament. After a 6-3 loss to Canada in the second game, the U.S. beat Finland 2-1 to make it to the gold medal game. Resor had an assist on the game's first goal when her shot was tipped in.

Resor has the most international experience of any Bulldog, having become the first Yale player to make an Olympic team roster when she was named to Team USA for the 2006 Torino games. She has also participated in the last two IIHF World Championships, earning a gold medal in 2005 and a silver medal this past spring. She has a pair of silver medals from her two previous Four Nations Cup appearances.

The United States has finished either first or second in each of the 11 years it has competed in the Women's Four Nations Cup (Three Nations Cup from 1996-99), including second-place finishes the last four years.
