Chad Billins remembers all the good times of competing at Ferris State and taking the Bulldogs to the Frozen Four back in 2012. He's had a successful hockey career since then with stints on the Grand Rapids Griffins and several other teams across the country and the world. Now he's preparing for a new challenge next month.

Billins is one of 23 Americans who will be representing the United States on the Men's Ice Hockey team at the Winter Olympic Games next month in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

We caught up with Billins earlier this week via Skype to get his thoughts competing in this worldwide phenomenon.

Team USA will begin Olympic tournament play on February 14th against Slovenia.
