Canada’s National Women’s Team started its prep for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games with a 4-0 exhibition win over the Kwangwoon University Men’s Team at the Seonhak Ice Rink in Incheon, South Korea on Saturday.
- Marie-Philip Poulin (Beauceville, Que./Montreal, CWHL), Bailey Bram (Ste. Anne, Man./Calgary, CWHL), Renata Fast (Burlington, Ont./Toronto, CWHL), and Haley Irwin (Thunder Bay, Ont./Calgary, CWHL) all netted goals for Canada.
“It was really good to get our first game as a team over here in Korea. We got some of the kinks and travel legs out and it was definitely a good feeling to get on the ice.”
– Fast on Canada’s exhibition game play
“We just have to continue what we’ve been doing in Calgary and that’s making sure we’re taking every practice and every game the same. There’s parts of our game that we’re constantly working on and we can’t lose sight of that.”
– Irwin on what Canada continues to focus on
“These games are really important in our preparation – they allow us to get in sync and get our habits and details back.”
– Head coach Laura Schuler (Scarborough, Ont.)
