The top three teams in women's ice hockey which include Canada, the United States and Finland have been invited to take part in the first ever 3 Nations Cup which runs from October 20-27, 1996 in cities throughout Ontario and Canton, New York.

Team Canada head coach Shannon Miller has invited 33 players from across Canada to attend training camp. Miller, along with her two assistants, Melody Davidson and Daniele Sauvageau will trim the roster down to 20 skaters and 2 goaltenders for the tournament.

Team Canada will hold a news conference on Tuesday, at the Jim Durrell arena beginning at 1 pm. Head coach Shannon Miller will be on hand as well as a number of the members of Team Canada to field any questions that you may have.

This double round-robin tournament will give these countries a chance to take each other's measure just prior to the 1997 Women's World Championship slated for March 31 - April 6 in Kitchener, Ont. The top five countries from the world championship advance to the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan along with the host country.
