TORONTO — Longtime women’s national hockey team member Hayley Wickenheiser plans to make the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, her swansong.
The 32-year-old, who has played with the Canadian team for 17 years, made the announcement Thursday at the Molson Canadian World Hockey Summit in Toronto.
A native of Shaunovan, Sask., Wickenheiser captained the Canadian team to the gold medal at the Vancouver Winter Games this past February. She was also a member of the gold-medal winning teams at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games and the 2006 Turin Games.
She won silver at the 1998 Nagano Games.
Wickenheiser, who now calls Calgary home, also competed for Canada in softball at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
