Canadians hire Olympic hero Marie-Philip Poulin as player development consultant.


Canadian Olympian Marie-Philip Poulin has scored a front-office position with the Montreal Canadiens.


The National Hockey League club announced Tuesday that Poulin, a four-time Olympic medallist with Canada's national women's hockey team, is joining the team as a part-time player development consultant.


The Canadiens say Poulin will be called upon to join the players on the ice and in video sessions to work on their individual and collective skills.


The 31-year-old Poulin will hold the job while continuing to play with Canada's national team.


Poulin has won 15 medals in international competitions, including three gold medals at the Olympics, where she became the first hockey player to score a goal in four straight finals.


She scored the gold-medal winnings goals for Canada at the 2010 Vancouver Games, 2014 Sochi Games and 2022 Beijing Games in February.
