Sweden's National Women's Team has finished fourth at the Women's World Hockey Championship four times in total (2000, 1999, 1992, 1990). Sweden finished 7th at the 2001 World Championship and 5th at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan.
"This is a terrific opportunity for the National Women's Team to play in Canada and showcase women's hockey to Canadians in British Columbia," said Danièle Sauvageau, Head Coach of Canada's National Women's Team. "Team Sweden is a young and improving women's hockey nation that will force our players to perform at a high level."

The CHA will also be running a number of development programs in each host community, programs such as Esso Fun Days and Coaches Clinics. For further information on these programs, contact Shelley Coolidge, Manager, Female Hockey Development at 403-777-4588.

Canada's National Women's Under 22 Team will also be in action in October, in BC, playing the same Swedish National Team on October 7th (Langley, BC), October 8th (Delta, BC) and October 9th (Langley, BC). Details will follow shortly.
