American goalie Jessie Vetter will have to go to the Olympics without a quote from the U.S. Constitution on her mask.

Vetter's original design included a reference from the preamble to the Constitution, including the iconic script of the opening words, ''We the People.'' But International Olympic Committee rules ban any ''form of publicity or propaganda, commercial or otherwise,'' on uniforms.

Artist Ron Slater says he also had to remove the Olympic rings from the chin on his original design.

And Vetter's name also had to go.

He says Vetter got the new mask back last week in time to break it in for next month's Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
