Hockey Canada announced that Caroline Ouellette has been added to Canada’s National Women’s Team roster for the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship.

Ouellette replaces Haley Irwin, who is injured and unable to participate.

A member of Canada’s National Women’s Team since the 1999/2000 season, Ouellette sits third in all-time scoring with Team Canada with 238 points (85 goals, 153 assists) in 215 international games. She has won four gold medals at the Olympic Winter Games (2002, 2006, 2010, 2014), including captaining the team at the most recent Games in Sochi, Russia, and is a six-time gold medallist at the IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship (1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2007 and 2012).

It was also announced that goaltender Erica Howe will participate in pre-competition camp while Ann-Renee Desbiens and Emerance Maschmeyer are competing with their club teams at the NCAA Frozen Four. Forward Emily Clark will also be participating in the NCAA Frozen Four, and will miss the start of camp.
