KAMLOOPS, B.C. – Canada’s National Women’s Team has won the gold medal at the 2014 4 Nations Cup, beating the United States 3-2 in shootout in Saturday’s gold medal game at the Interior Savings Centre in Kamloops.

It is the 14th time Canada has won the gold medal at the 4 Nations Cup (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014). The Canadians have appeared in each of the 19 gold medal games at the tournament; in addition to 14 gold medals, they also have five silver medals (1997, 2003, 2008, 2011, 2012).

Jennifer Wakefield (Pickering, Ont./IK Guts, SWE) scored twice in regulation time for the Canadians, opening the scoring in the first period and bringing Canada even late in the second after the Americans had taken the lead. After a scoreless third period and 20-minute overtime, Brianne Jenner (Oakville, Ont./Cornell University, ECAC) scored the lone goal of the shootout to give Canada the win, and the gold medal.

Geneviève Lacasse (Kingston, Ont./Boston, CWHL) made 33 saves in regulation and overtime, including 10 in the extra period, and stopped all three U.S. shooters she faced in the shootout. She was named Player of the Game.

The game drew 5,816 fans to the Interior Savings Centre, setting an attendance record for a 4 Nations Cup gold medal game.

Canada’s National Women’s Team finished in first place during the preliminary round, defeating Sweden 2-0 on Tuesday, the United States 3-2 on Wednesday, and Finland 3-1 on Friday. The United States finished second, while Finland was third and Sweden settled for fourth place.

In Saturday afternoon’s bronze medal game, Sweden beat Finland 2-1 in overtime.

The 2014 4 Nations Cup is the first of two major hockey events in Canada’s Tournament Capital, as Kamloops will be hosting the 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship in April 2016. Full-tournament ticket packages are now available at www.hockeycanada.ca/2016kamloops.
