The German women’s national team will start the Olympics without Daria Gleissner, who will be replaced by Lisa Schuster.

Gleissner suffered a concussion in a scrimmage and will not be able to participate in the Olympic women’s ice hockey tournament.

The Germans nominated Schuster of OSC Berlin to replace her. The 26-year-old already arrived yesterday and was added to the roster. She has represented Germany in four IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championships including three in the top division.
