CALGARY, AB -- Geraldine Heaney of Weston, ON, Danielle Goyette of St-Nazaire, QC, and Lori Dupuis, of Williamstown, ON, each scored twice to pace Canada's Women's Olympic Hockey Team to a 10-0 victory over the Swedish National Women's Team in a pre-Olympic tuneup game at Father David Bauer Arena on Thursday night.Hayley Wickenheiser of Calgary scored once and added a pair of assists, while Karen Nystrom and Vicky Sunohara, both of Scarborough, ON, and Angela James of Thornhill, ON, added singles. Goaltender Lesley Reddon of Fredericton, NB faced 23 shots to earn the shutout for Team Canada. The Canadian women ran their season won-lost mark to 3-0 with the victory, which follows a pair of wins over the Chinese National Women's Team last week.

Canada outshot Team Sweden 62-23 in a one-sided contest witnessed by about 500 fans at Team Canada's training home as they prepare for the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan in February.

The two teams will meet three more times over the weekend on a three-city tour of Saskatchewan, with games in Saskatoon, Regina and Melfort, the home town of Team Canada head coach Shannon Miller. Following that tour, Team Canada returns to the Royal Bank Canadian Hockey Centre for two days before flying to Salt Lake City for the first of 12 games they will play against Team USA, their toughest rival and the second seed in the Women's Olympic Ice Hockey Tournament.

It's also the first time Team Canada has ever played any games in Saskatchewan. The Women's Olympic Team will play the Swedes in Saskatoon at Saskatchewan Place on Friday, Oct. 17, at the Agridome in Regina on Sunday, Oct. 19 and on Monday, Oct. 20 at the Northern Lights Palace in Melfort.

"Leading our team into my home province and my home town is going to be a proud and exciting experience for me," said Miller. "This tour is, first and foremost, part of the process of selecting the 20 players who will represent Canada at the Winter Games, but it's also an outstanding opportunity to promote our sport."

Miller is among a strong Saskatchewan-born contingent on Team Canada. Wickenheiser was born in Shaunavon, Dana Antal is from Esterhazy, defender Fiona Smith is a native of Edam, while defender Carol Scheibel is from Wilcox.

On Saturday, Oct. 18 Team Canada will visit Wilcox, and the Notre Dame College Campus, where 11 of the players will skate from 4:00 - 4:45 p.m. and the team will hold an autograph session beginning at 6:15 p.m.

Miller's team will travel to Saskatchewan with 24 of the 28 Olympic hopefuls along for the tour. Veterans Cassie Campbell, Sunohara and Reddon, along with rookie Kathy McCormack, remained in Calgary. Reddon, who backstopped Canada to its fourth straight gold medal at the Women's World Championship in Kitchener, ON last April, will work out with Canada's Men's National Team over the weekend, while Campbell, Sunohara and McCormack will train with the Olympic Oval High Performance Women's Hockey program, which operates out of the University of Calgary.
