It was also announced Wednesday that goaltender Erica Howe (Orleans, Ont./Brampton, CWHL) will participate in pre-competition camp while Ann-Renée Desbiens (La Malbaie, Que./University of Wisconsin, WCHA) and Emerance Maschmeyer (Bruderheim, Alta./Harvard University, ECAC) are competing with their club teams at the NCAA Frozen Four. Forward Emily Clark (Saskatoon, Sask./University of Wisconsin, WCHA) will also be participating in the NCAA Frozen Four, and will miss the start of camp.

Clark, Desbiens and Maschmeyer will join Team Canada at the conclusion of the NCAA season.
