Wickenheiser Nabs Pair of Honours

The awards have continued to accumulate for Hayley Wickenheiser.

The captain of Canada’s National Women’s Team was formally presented with the Bobbie Rodenfeld Award during the team’s pre-worlds camp in Colwood, BC just under two weeks ago. Donna Spencer of Canadian Press, whose members vote each year for a winner, delivered a plaque to Wickenheiser at a Team Canada practice.

The award, handed out annually since 1933 (it was re-named the Bobbie Rosenfeld award in 1950), has only gone to an athlete from a team sport once before.

Cindy Klasses, Catriona Le May Doan and Lorie Kane are past winners.

And earlier this week, Wickenheiser cracked a top-25 list of the toughest athletes, which was put together by Sports Illustrated.

Wickenheiser and her Team Canada teammates take on China on Sunday in the final round-robin game for both teams at the 2008 IIHF World Women’s Championship.
