TIKKURILA, Finland – Canada’s National Women’s Team has claimed the silver medal at the 2012 4 Nations Cup, losing to the United States 3-0 in Saturday’s gold medal game at Valtti Areena in Tikkurila.

The United States scored one goal in every period to earn the victory, including on two power-plays. Goaltender Charline Labonté (Boisbriand, Que./Montreal, CWHL) made 19 saves to keep Canada in the game.

Canada finished in first place during the preliminary round, defeating Finland 6-0 on Tuesday, the United States 3-1 on Wednesday and Sweden 9-0 on Friday. The Americans finished second, while host Finland came in third and Sweden settled for fourth place in the round robin.

Canada has now won 12 gold and four silver medals at the 3 Nations/4 Nations Cup since the tournament’s 1996 inception.

The 2012 4 Nations Cup served as an evaluation opportunity for Canada’s National Women’s Team coaching staff and Hockey Canada scouts for the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Ottawa, Ont., and 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Players will continue to be evaluated with their club teams during the 2012-13 season.

Following the tournament, all players that attended Canada’s National Women’s Team September Camp/Fall Festival will continue to be monitored with their club teams throughout the 2012-13 season, in order to select those that will represent Canada at the 2013 Meco Cup in Germany in January and the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship.

The 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship, taking place April 2-9 at SBP Arena and the Nepean Sportsplex, will mark the sixth time Canada has hosted the tournament. Canada also hosted in 1990 in Ottawa, 1997 in Kitchener, Ont., 2000 in Mississauga, Ont., 2004 in Halifax, N.S., and 2007 in Winnipeg, Man. The host committee is still recruiting volunteers for the event; please visit www.hockeycanada.ca/2013ottawa for more information.
