Canada’s Women’s Hockey Team gets Ready to Take on the World

March 3, 2012

On March 1st, 2012, Hockey Canada released the National Team Selection roster for the 2012 World Championships to be held in Burlington, Vermont. There are 18 returnees from the 2011 silver medal winning team.  The camp will be held from March 26th – April 1st in Ottawa. The team will be led by head coach Dan Church assisted by Doug Derraugh and former national team member, Danielle Goyette.

With the World Championships set to return to Canada in 2013, having the selection camp in Ottawa this year is hoped to keep interest up and Hockey Canada is running a deal in which those buying full ticket packages to the 2013 championships receive a free ticket to a selection camp exhibition match this March 31st, when Team Canada hosts Team USA.

Three players were not named to the selection camp roster for varying reasons: Kim St. Pierre (motherhood), Bobbi-Jo Slusar (injury), and Sarah Vaillancourt (injury).

Congratulations and good luck to all candidates, Go Canada Go!
