Canada Women’s National Hockey TicketsCanada’s women's ice hockey team boasts one of the most dominant and consistent records of any national team in sports history. Between 1990 and 2004, Canada won every single medal at the World Championships. Though the team's streak was eventually broken by the USA, it won two more titles in 2007 and 2012. After women’s hockey was introduced at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Canada captured the first silver medal with a 3-1 loss to the United States in the championship game. The team responded by winning the next four Olympic games between 2002 and 2014, three of which came against the United States and one against Sweden. Canada captured a second silver medal in the 2018 Korean Olympics with a loss to the United States again. Other honors include championships at the Four Nations Cup and the Winter Universiade.

Who are some of the top players in Team Canada’s history?Team Canada features some of the best women’s ice hockey players of all time. Marie-Philip Poulin, the team captain, has won numerous awards, including World Championship MVP, World Championship best forward, Olympic all-star and a three-time MVP with the Montreal Stars of the women’s hockey league. She is perhaps remembered most fondly for scoring two gold medal-winning goals at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics. Rebecca Johnston, who played for the Calgary Inferno in the CWHL, was one of Canada’s top scorers at the international level during the 2010s. Goaltender Shannon Szabados has won various goaltender awards at the international level while keeping the net safe for Canada. Of all the Canadian greats, however, Hayley Wickenheiser is perhaps the most distinguished ice hockey players ever. She holds the team record for most goals, assists, points and games played during her long career. She was also Canada’s official flag bearer in the 2014 Olympics. Other notable players on Team Canada include goaltender Kim St-Pierre, defenders Laura Fortino and Carla MacLeod and forwards Meghan Agosta and Gillian Apps.
Who is Team Canada’s biggest rival?Team Canada and USA have dominated women’s hockey since the beginning of the sport. They have met in five of the six Olympic gold medal games, and of those, Canada holds a slight 3-2 edge. The two teams also met in every single World Championship until Finland broke the streak in 2019. USA and Canada are two of the four teams represented in the annual Four Nations Cup. Their ferocious battles on the ice have helped to define the sport of women’s hockey.
How did Team Canada finish in 2019?At the 2019 World Championships, which was their biggest event of the year, Team Canada finished a somewhat disappointing third place behind USA and host Finland. It was the first time Canada had finished below second place in the World Championships history.
What are some of the important upcoming dates on the Canada women’s national hockey schedule?The 2020 IIHF Women’s World Championship was originally scheduled to take place between March 31 and April 10 at home in Halifax and Truro, Nova Scotia. However, the event has been canceled for the year. It is scheduled to come back at the same locations in 2021. Other events throughout the year include the National Women’s Under-18 Championship, which features the youth team, and various exhibition games against other national teams.

He then served as a coach for the Campbellton Tigers of the Maritime Hockey League before joining Canada’s bench as an assistant in 2016.
