Road to the Olympics: Team USA Women's Hockey focused on Pyeongchang

Agosta was one of 23 players named Friday by Hockey Canada and Canadian Olympic Committee officials to the national women's hockey team for the upcoming Olympics in South Korea.

Canada's roster includes three goaltenders, six defensemen and 14 forwards. She tallied two goals, 10 assists and a plus-46 during that campaign. Canada has won the last four Olympic gold medals in women's hockey.

The Winter Olympic hockey tournament will be February 10-22 at PyeongChang, South Korea. 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.

Three months after the birth of Calder, who was named through a national Twitter contest, Mikkelson was cleared for full competition and the next month attended the national team selection camp for the 2016 worlds and hasn't looked back.

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.

He references the 1980 "Miracle" team, underdogs who were also college-aged, but went on to defeat Russian Federation and win gold.

Jack Wilshere admits Arsenal were 'scared' of Liverpool before mounting Emirates comeback
The points were shared at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal and Liverpool drew 3-3 in an entertaining game in the capital. There were two changes from Jurgen Klopp ahead of kick off as Emre Can and Sadio Mane returned to the starting line up.

"We're going after the gold, no question", Duggan said.

Marie-Philip Poulin was the hero in Sochi.

"Canada's strong tradition of hockey talent is on display here, there is so much talent and depth on this team", said Isabelle Charest, PyeongChang 2018 Team Canada Chef de Mission.

Sarah Potomak and Blayre Turnbull scored 21 seconds apart in the first period and Genevieve Lacasse stopped a game-high 28 shots in the fast-paced and entertaining affair in front of a pro-Team Canada crowd.

Lacquette knows exactly how it feels to be on the other end of that.

"Obviously I have a lot on my plate but I'm just happy that I'm still here".
