All three were part of the 2014 Gold Medal-winning team

Canada’s women’s national team has named its Olympic roster for the upcoming Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea and as expected three members of Les Canadiennes have been named to the roster.

Marie-Philip Poulin, Lauriane Rougeau, and Melodie Daoust have made the roster like they did in 2014 when Canada won gold.

Poulin has been the captain of the national team for the last few years and is as much a lock as anybody on the roster. She is one of the best women’s hockey players in the world, and needs no introduction.

Poulin has eight goals and four assists in 10 games at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics.

Rougeau is also expected to play a big role for Canada. She is among the top defenders in the country and played all five games at the 2014 Games but did not record a point.

Daoust is in a rare group as she is getting set for her second Olympics but has never played at the World Championships due to injuries or not making the roster.

She has played with Poulin on the top line at times during the centralization process. She had one goal at the 2014 Olympics in five games.

Former Montreal Star Meghan Agosta will be making her fourth appearance at the Olympics. She has three gold medals.
