Four Manitobans named to Team Canada

  • Print

Four Manitobans have been named to the Team Canada roster that will look to chase women’s hockey gold in Russia at the 2014 Olympic Games.

The four include two who captured silver at the recent World Championships in Ottawa: forward Bailey Bram, who scored her first national team goal at the tournament, and defender Jocelyne Larocque, both from Ste. Anne.

Joining them are Waterhen product Brigette Lacquette, a defender with the University of Minnesota Duluth, and Winnipeg forward Jenelle Kohanchuk, who plays with Boston University.

Hockey Canada unveiled the 27-woman centralization roster for 2013-14 on Thursday. The roster features three goalies, nine defencemen and 15 forwards. Twenty-two of the players were on the World Championship team, and 13 won gold at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

The team will gather in Calgary in late May for orientation and fitness testing. They will start full-time training in August. After a series of games, the final roster for the 2014 Olympics will be set by late December.
