Three BC Players Named to Canada’s National Women’s Team Centralization Roster
Thursday, May 11, 2017

Hockey Canada released the names of the 28 players selected to Canada’s National Women’s Team roster that will centralize in Calgary, Alberta for the 2017-2018 season, which includes three (3) BC players.

The roster was selected by head coach Laura Schuler alongside Melody Davidson, Hockey Canada’s General Manager of National Women’s Team Programs, and included support from Hockey Canada regional scouts, assistant coaches Dwayne Gylywoychuk and Troy Ryan, and goaltending coach Brad Kirkwood.  

“We’re looking forward to continuing our preparation for PyeongChang with this dedicated group of athletes,” said Schuler. “It was a difficult process selecting the 28 players that will vie for a spot on Canada’s Olympic roster and we’re excited to be one step closer in that journey.”

Hart, Amy and Sarah Potomak were all named to the National Women’s team that competed in a series against the United States last December.  Sarah Potomak previously played with Team Canada at the 2016 Four (4) Nations Cup and at the 2017 IIHF Women’s World Championship, winning silver.  Hart and Amy Potomak also competed with the National Women’s Development Team for the 2017 Nations Cup in Füssen, Germany and Telfs, Austria. The BC players are the three (3) youngest players named to the roster.

All 28 players named to Canada’s National Women’s Team centralization roster will begin their preparation with fitness testing in late May. Details on the location of camp will be announced next week.


The players and staff will come together in Calgary this August on a full-time basis with Hockey Canada, based out of the Markin MacPhail Centre at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park. Canada’s final 23-player roster for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games is tentatively scheduled to be determined in late December.
