A core of veterans will lead the U.S. women’s national team at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. “The amount of skill and depth of talent on this roster is second-to-none and I couldn’t be more excited to see what these 23 women can do on the world stage in PyeongChang,” said head coach Robb Stauber.
Brigette Lacquette chokes up while thinking about how far her hockey career has come. Four years ago, she came so close to playing for Canada at the Olympics but did not make the final cuts.
Canada’s national women’s team got the best of the U.S. in a six-game series but the wins that really matter will not be earned until February at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.
Hockey Canada just released their roster for the Channel One Cup, another tournament in a series en route to the PyeongChang Olympics and Men’s Canadian team. Channel One is the fourth such tournament, following the Sochi Hockey Open and Tournament of Nikolai Puchkov at the end of the summer and Karjala Cup last month. After Channel One, only the Spengler Cup stands between Olympic hopefuls and the final roster announcement.
