Saskatoon's Emily Clark makes Canada's Olympic women's hockey team

Team Canada celebrates a game-winning goal

Wisconsin and Cornell lead all NCAA schools with five representatives each on the roster. 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.

Current senior Emily Clark and former Badgers Meaghan Mickelson, Ann-Renee Desbiens, Sarah Nurse and Blair Turnbull were named to Team Canada's Winter Olympics squad. "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".

Another OHA student-athlete was among the cuts for the Canadian Women's Hockey team and is congratulated on making it this far at the young age of 20-years-old.

Next year's games from February 9 to 24 will be Clark's first Olympic appearance.

"This includes gold medals at the last four Olympic Winter Games and with a reputation like that, all eyes will be on Canada in PyeongChang".

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

"I don't think that the fans realize how special that is for me, even at the start of the game when they announce the starting lineup and to have the crowd cheer as loud for me as they did or going into the shootout".

A recent busy stretch for Team Canada - 2-1 overtime classic against the United States on Sunday at Rogers Place to finish the six-game series with five wins and one loss against its arch-rival, the St. Albert homecoming against the Raiders and Wednesday's 2-2 draw against the Maple Leafs at Bill Hunter Arena during the Journey To Gold series against Alberta Midget AAA Hockey League teams - allowed Mikkelson to stay close to her biggest fans.

Fourteen players on the club won the gold medal at the 2014 Olympics in Russian Federation.

The Olympic women's hockey tournament opens on Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Kwandong Hockey Centre and culminates on Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Gangneung Hockey Centre.

Clark is the youngest player to be named to the Canadian National Team.
