CALGARY, AB - Canada's National Women's Team will face Sweden in a five-game tour that will be played in British Columbia and Alberta in January, 2001, the Canadian Hockey Association announced on Thursday.

Canada's National Women's Team has won all six Women's World Hockey Championships and captured a silver medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Canada's roster for these games against Sweden will be announced in mid-December.

Sweden's National Women's Team has now finished fourth at the Women's World Hockey Championship four times in total, including the past two Worlds in 20. Sweden finished 5th at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.

"This is a terrific opportunity for the National Women's Team to play in Canada and showcase women's hockey to Canadians in British Columbia and Alberta," said Danièle Sauvageau, Head Coach of Canada's National Women's Team. "Team Sweden is a young and improving women's hockey nation that will force our players to perform at a high level."
