Calgary, AB - Canada's National Women's Hockey Team has released forward Nancy Drolet and added forward Cherie Piper to its roster for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, General Manager/Head Coach Danièle Sauvageau announced on Monday.

Sauvageau and the coaching staff decided to make this adjustment to the roster following a re-evaluation of the team. Drolet, 28, has been a member of Canada's National Women's Team since 1992.

Piper, 22, was left off of Canada's Women's Olympic Roster in November, but has remained training with the team, and has 8 points in 12 games with Team Canada this season. Piper, a native of Scarborough, ON, also scored 18 goals in 13 games, while starring over the past two seasons with Canada's National Women's Under 22 Team.

Canada's National Women's Team submitted its roster to the Canadian Olympic Association today, Monday, January 14th, for the COA's deadline for submitting final team selections for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

Canada's National Women's Team will continue to train in Calgary, AB over the few weeks before leaving for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games on February 6th, 2002. Canada's first game at the Winter Olympics will be on Monday, February 11th against Kazakstan.
