It's a three-banner day for local women's hockey

It's a three-banner day for local women's hockey

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

"It was an extremely hard decision narrowing down our roster due to the depth of talent on our team; we are excited to move forward with the 23 players chosen to represent Canada at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games", said head coach Laura Schuler (Scarborough, Ont).

Prior to being named to Team Canada, all nominations are subject to approval by the COC's Team Selection Committee following its receipt of nominations by all National Sport Federations in late January 2018.

According to Madison.com, former Badgers players Brianna Decker, Meghan Duggan, Hilary Knight and Alex Rigsby remain in contention for Team USA.

She plays professionally for the Toronto Furies of the Canadian Women's Hockey League, but has been with the national team most of the season. "We haven't selected our team yet so you're still pushing for a job".

Coach Laura Schuler picked three goaltenders, six defensemen and 14 forwards to the team going to Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Veteran Brianne Jenner of Oakville, Ont., says with rookies like Lacquette on board, this team is faster than it was four years ago when they won gold in Sochi in an overtime thriller against Team USA.

Agosta says going 5-1 in a pre-Games exhibition series against the rival Americans - Canada and the US have met in every Olympic final in women's hockey - is a good boost heading into PyeongChang. "As individuals and as a team we need to believe in ourselves, in our abilities", Agosta said. The final cuts were defenders Halli Krzyzaniak and Micah Zandee-Hart along with forward Sarah Potomak.

"Canada's strong tradition of hockey talent is on display here, there is so much talent and depth on this team", said Isabelle Charest, PyeongChang 2018 Team Canada Chef de Mission. "Yesterday was a bittersweet day for us, losing some teammates". Of course, the fact she's going to the Olympics hasn't hit her just yet.
