Veteran forwards Poulin, Johnston lead Canada's bid to reclaim Olympic hockey gold

 

Marie-Philip Poulin and Rebecca Johnston headline Canada's Olympic women's hockey team roster unveiled Tuesday.

 

The two women will represent Canada for the fourth time in their careers after winning Olympic gold in both 2010 and 2014, and silver in 2018.

 

The 23-player roster of three goaltenders, seven defenders and 13 forwards was announced virtually by Hockey Canada.

 

Thirteen women return from the team that lost 3-2 in a shootout to the United States in the 2018 gold-medal game in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

 

Canada opens its bid to reclaim gold Feb. 3, which is the day before the opening ceremonies, in a preliminary-round game against Switzerland in Beijing's National Indoor Stadium.

 

The gold-medal game is Feb. 16.
