Victoria, BC – Canada’s National Women’s Team has arrived on Vancouver Island.

And now the work begins for Team Canada, which is after its second-straight gold medal at the IIHF World Women’s Championship. Canada will be in Victoria until Sunday, March 30th, when players and staff fly to Beijing, China, and then catch a connecting flight to Harbin.

The 2008 IIHF World Women’s Championship runs April 4-12 in Harbin.

Players and coaches hit the ice for two practices on Wednesday at Bear Mountain Arena.
