Saskatoon's Emily Clark makes Canada's Olympic women's hockey team

21 current and former NCAA student-athletes named to Team Canada's Olympic women's hockey team

Two Nova Scotians named to Canadian women's hockey team headed to Olympics

Canada has won the last four Olympic gold medals in women's hockey. "We have some really athletic players that will be joining this roster".

Lacquette will be among nine Olympic rookies who'll make their Winter Games debuts with Canada in little over a month in PyeongChang, and in doing so, she'll also make history.

"I always wanted to play on an Olympic stage", Greenway said. Of course, the fact she's going to the Olympics hasn't hit her just yet.

Agosta says going 5-1 in a pre-Games exhibition series against the rival Americans - Canada and the USA have met in every Olympic final in women's hockey - is a good boost heading into PyeongChang.

"I don't think that the fans realize how special that is for me, even at the start of the game when they announce the starting lineup and to have the crowd cheer as loud for me as they did or going into the shootout".

"We've had a really tough schedule, we've played 11 global games so far and about 20 games against the Alberta boys midget teams and I'm really, really happy with where we're at and really excited about our future", said head coach Laura Schuler. This will be her second Games.

University of Wisconsin men's hockey coach Tony Granato will lead the team in PyeongChang.

Team Canada is 7-4-2 (39 GF/31 GA) against AMHL teams and the results count in the league standings.

Hockey Canada named the team that will compete in Pyongchang on Friday, and one of those making it is Saskatoon's Emily Clark.

The Canadian Women's Olympic Hockey Team also features: 14 players who won the gold medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia; six players who won the gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, B.C.; and one player who won the gold medal at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin, Italy.
