Canada will play three games leading up to the gold medal game on November 14 which includes a round robin game versus the USA in Burlington, Vermont on November 11. The red and white and will be looking to recapture the Four Nations title after losing in last year’s final in Skovde, Sweden to the USA in a shoot-out. The only other time Canada has failed to win the event was when it was held in Lake Placid in 1997, again losing to the USA.

Team Canada will feature ten Olympic gold medalists, and three rookie players to the senior team. Meghan Agosta, Tessa Bonhomme, and Katie Weatherston will all be making their National Team debuts in Lake Placid.
