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

"I always wanted to play on an Olympic stage", Greenway said.

Agosta says going 5-1 in a pre-Games exhibition series against the rival Americans - Canada and the USA have met in every Olympic final in women's hockey - is a good boost heading into PyeongChang.

"I'm super excited", she said.

At the 2017 IIHF Women's World Championships, Clark scored twice and played on Canada's top line during the final two games of the tournament. "These players have worked hard to earn this moment and we are confident that they will be able to inspire and unite our country as they set their sights on a fifth straight gold medal for Canada". "I know I didn't score, that would've been nice, but when I'm up to shoot in the shootout and they're giving me a great loud cheer it means a lot to me", said Mikkelson, a forward with the bantam AAA St. Albert Gregg Distributors Sabres during her minor hockey days before going on to win back-to-back NCAA championships with the Wisconsin Badgers.

When Thompson asked, "Why did you try and smoke in the bathroom?", Curbello responded by saying, "the anxiety, yeah the anxiety". Southwest Airlines reported the woman was caught smoking in one of the plane's bathrooms and tampered with a smoke detector.

Some flights cancelled from United Kingdom to Ireland due to snow
Scotland's Edinburgh airport also cancelled seven flights while Manchester reported that 13 flights were called off. British Airways was worst affected, with 24 long-haul departures cancelled as well as dozens of short-haul flights.

Terry and Greenway are both also aware that they may not be hockey fans' first choice for the team. There are 14 holdovers from the team that won gold in Sochi, six who won gold in 2010 and one who won gold in 2006-that's veteran forward, Meghan Agosta, of Ruthven, Ont., who's also a police officer.

Hockey Canada named the team that will compete in Pyongchang on Friday, and one of those making it is Saskatoon's Emily Clark.

"We have a lot of younger players that have come in and really pushed for jobs".

Veteran Brianne Jenner of Oakville, Ont., says with rookies like Lacquette on board, this team is faster than it was four years ago when they won gold in Sochi in an overtime thriller against Team USA. The calibre of players in our program just continues to get better and these young players bring a lot of energy.
