U.S. women's hockey team shows solidarity with 1-word statements


A picture can say a thousand words, but sometimes, it only needs to say one.

Every member of the U.S. women's national hockey team shared pictures of themselves holding single-word messages Friday in a statement of solidarity as their battle with USA Hockey continues.

NBC's Olympic Talk compiled all 23 of the messages, which you can see here.

USA Hockey confirmed Thursday that it is preparing for the possibility of using replacement players for the upcoming World Championship if the women's team follows through on its boycott threat, from which players have said they will not back down.

The governing body has already postponed its training camp amid the ongoing dispute over what the players deem are unfair wages.

Camp was originally scheduled to open earlier this week, and the tournament itself begins next Friday in Plymouth, Mich.
