Career Highlights:

Schaus is one of 11 current Olympic team members who earned a silver medal for the United States at the 2010 Vancouver Games, and one of three goaltenders on this year's squad. She saw action in only one game in Vancouver and did not allow a goal on five shots during a 12-1 rout of China in the United States' opening contest. With 2010 mainstay Jessie Vetter set to open these Olympics as the starting netminder, Schaus could again find playing time tough to come by in Sochi. In 41 games with the national program, Schaus is 22-10-3 with a 1.75 goals-against average. She has played in four International Ice Hockey Federation women's world championships and six Four Nations Cups. Schaus allowed one goal on 10 shots while going 1-0-0 in two games at the 2013 Four Nations Cup. A two-time All-America at Boston College where she owns school record for wins (80), GAA (1.81) and saves (3,428), Schaus was named the 2012 Goalie of Year as a member of the Boston Blades of the Canadian Women's Hockey League. She then helped the club win the 2013 Clarkson Cup as the league champion. When Schaus is not on the ice, she can be found volunteering with Cradles to Crayons, a Boston-area organization that helps underprivileged youth thrive in their communities. She also helped build a house in Honduras for Habitat for Humanity in 2011.
