GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The top line on the University of North Dakota women's hockey team this year will feature three Olympic medal winners.

The Grand Forks Herald reports (http://bit.ly/pieJYE) that Finnish star Michelle Karvinen has finally received permission from the NCAA to join the team, after more than a year of waiting. She will join sisters Jocelyn Lamoureux (LAM'-uh-roo) and Monique Lamoureux-Kolls on the Fighting Sioux top line.

Karvinen earned a bronze medal with Finland at the 2010 Games. The Lamoureux twins won silver with the U.S.

The Sioux have exhibition games Friday and Saturday against the University of Manitoba.
