National Women's Team Roster Set for Four Nations Cup in Provo, Utah
October 18, 2000

CALGARY, AB - Canada's National Women's Team roster is set for the upcoming Four Nations Cup from November 7-11 in Provo, USA, the Canadian Hockey Association announced on Wednesday.

Head coach Danièle Sauvageau and assistants Melody Davidson and Wally Kozak named twenty-two players to this roster from a pool of over 30 players that remain in consideration for the National Women's Team final World Championship roster. The Four Nations Cup roster includes 16 players from the 2000 World Champion National Women's Team.

The Four Nations Cup is another step in a seven month process of evaluating players for the 2001 IIHF Women's World Hockey Championship April 2-8, 2001 in Minnesota, USA. Over the next four months, the coaching staff will continue to evaluate players and form another development roster for a January tour using a variety of players from a large pool of potential players for the National Women's Team.

No final roster decisions will be made until mid-February, when the CHA will name the final roster for Canada's National Women's team that will compete at the Women's Worlds.

The Four Nations Cup will bring together national teams from Canada, the USA, Finland and Sweden for a four-day tournament organized by the Salt Lake City Organizing Committee, which is using this as a test event in preparation of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Canada plays its first game on November 7th against Finland.

Media accreditation forms for the Four Nations Cup are available by contacting André Brin, Manager, Media Relations at 403-777-3609.

In related news, four-time World Champion and Olympian Judy Diduck, 34, has informed the coaching staff and the CHA that she is retiring from international competition. Diduck, a defenceman from Sherwood Park, AB, has played 66 international games with Canada's National Women's Team, accumulating 24 points over that time.
