SOCHI, Russia -- Jonathan Quick will be the goaltender for the U.S. when it plays Slovakia on Thursday in its Olympic hockey opener.

Coach Dan Bylsma says he has a plan in net for other preliminary-round games, but on Wednesday declined to say what it was.

Quick will get the start instead of Ryan Miller and No. 3 goalie Jimmy Howard. Miller helped the Americans win silver at the 2010 Olympics.
