Figure skater Jason Brown, who received a bronze medal for U.S. team competition, was lauded Tuesday in his hometown Highland Park.

Buffalo Grove Village Manager Dane Bragg said the plan is to recognize Bozek and her family when they are available. He said the honor would come at a village board meeting.

However, the village already has a public congratulations in the form of banners at some public facilities.

"Congratulations to Buffalo Grove's Megan Bozek," says the text with a U.S. flag in the background. "U.S.A. Women's Hockey Team Olympic Silver Medalist."

At a meeting on Jan. 6, Village President Jeffrey Braiman read a commendation recognizing Bozek's selection to the women's hockey squad.

Bozek, 22, has a long resume of hockey success that includes two NCAA championships with the University of Minnesota.

Known for her heavy right-handed shot from the point, Bozek had a goal, four assists and no penalties in the Winter Olympics.

Canada defeated the United States 3-2 in overtime in the gold-medal game.
