There is a governing body for each sport that oversees the selection of the team for that sport.
That body will organize a qualifying competition shortly before each Olympic games. The top finishers of that competition will then be vetted by the governing body to assess their readiness to compete in the Games.
They have the final say over who's on the team.

hockey is a sport where you use a hockey stick and a ball.
Because the court is made of ice, and it is easier to keep down the air conditioning costs in the winter than in the summer, but I do admit, a nice hockey stadium on a hot summer day would be a great idea!

7 - Joe Malone, Quebec, January 31, 1920, at Quebec is the most in NHL history.
Joe Malone, was the greatest scorer in the early history of the NHL, Malone began playing professional hockey in 1909. He became captain and coach of the Quebec Bulldogs in 1911 and promptly led them to two consecutive Stanley Cup championships. He scored 9 goals in one of the 1913 playoff games.
After the Quebec team folded, Malone joined the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL's first season, 1917-18. He scored 5 goals in their first game and ended the season with 44 goals in 20 games. The Quebec franchise resumed play in 1919 and Malone returned to the team. On January 31, 1920, he scored 7 goals in a game, still the NHL record, and he had 6 goals in the last game of the season. He led the league for the second time with 48 points on 39 goals and 9 assists. Malone returned to Montreal for one season, went to Hamilton, Ontario, for another, then played with Montreal again in 1922-23. He retired after just nine games the following season. He played 125 regular season games in the NHL, scoring 146 goals, with 21 assists. In 9 NHL playoff games, he had 5 goals.
World Junior Championship hockey games follow the regular 60 minute clock, divided into 3 20-minute periods. The only difference is that the clock runs up in international play; that is, it starts at 0:00 and runs to 20:00. [In the NHL it counts down.]
Throughout the NHL history the average age of rookie playing his first NHL game has been between 22 and 23 years. SOURCE: http://www.quanthockey.com/Distributions/RookieAgeDistribution.php
The United States won the overall medal count with 37 medals (9 gold, 15 silver, and 13 bronze). Germany came in second with a count of 30 medals (10 gold, 13 silver, and 7 bronze).
Dan Dilworth was the best. He had a backhand that could not be stopped and he could release it at any time. I saw him fire a backhand...yes a backhand shot from just inside the blueline that hit the farside upper net on a world class goalie that didn't even know he took the shot! Dan was amazing and very underrated. He was the best of the 64 club in my mind.
Dave Peterson, who was also the head coach of the 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic ice hockey team.
