Road to the Olympics: Team USA Women's Hockey focused on Pyeongchang

Canada has won four consecutive gold medals in women's hockey. "We haven't selected our team yet so you're still pushing for a job".

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. "This is the premier team to play on in the country, and there's so many people that want to be in your shoes", she said.

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. "It's just very special for me to be that role model for young first nations kids across Canada".

The first female to play rep boys' hockey in St. Albert with the 1997 atom AA provincial champion TD Lightning drew the loudest applause during the pre-game ceremony, similar to the ovation she received in 2013 when Team Canada rallied to tie the Raiders 3-3 in St. Albert, as well as the post-game shootout as the fourth of six shooters for Team Canada. "I am excited to watch them defend their gold medal in PyeongChang and can't wait to cheer them on".

Jenner says despite this being her second Olympic Games, the nerves were still there ahead of final cuts. The 22-year-old has been in the Hockey Canada system since 2011, working her way up to reach this point.

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