Candidates for Canada’s National Women’s Team are currently in Ottawa for winter camp, which starts today and runs through Friday, Jan. 25, with several training sessions and practices taking place at the Carleton Ice House throughout the week. The 22-player camp roster includes three goaltenders, seven defencemen and 12 forwards.

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

The last time SBP Arena hosted Canada’s National Women’s Team was Jan., when 16,347 fans filled the stands, breaking a women’s hockey game attendance record, and watched Canada edge the United States 3-2 in a shootout.

The 2013 edition will mark the sixth time Canada has hosted the women’s world championship, joining 1990 in Ottawa, 1997 in Kitchener, Ont., 2000 in Mississauga, Ont., 2004 in Halifax, N.S., and 2007 in Winnipeg, Man.
