DULUTH, MN -

The celebration will continue for quite some time, and on Tuesday that meant a visit to the Ellen Degeneres Show for the United States women's hockey team following its gold medal performance at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The team appeared on the show Tuesday, part of an ongoing nationwide celebration tour. On Monday night, they were honored and dropped the ceremonial first puck before an NHL game between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

The group includes University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) redshirt junior goaltender Maddie Rooney and former UMD defenseman Sidney Morin, both of whom were part of the gold medal win in PyeongChang.

The nationwide tour includes more stops at NHL and NBA games, as well as at the United States Department of State and on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

On March 7, the players will begin to return to their respective hometowns for local media opportunities.
