Defining players and defining moments define the TSN All-Time women’s Team Canada.

Superstars Angela James, Geraldine Heaney, Danielle Goyette, Jayna Hefford and Hayley Wickenheiser have more gold than the national mint between them.

James won four gold medals, Heaney eight, Goyette 10, Hefford 11 and Wickenheiser 11.

They have all been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame and are automatic choices for the all-time Team Canada.

Each of them is a flag bearer for the sport, metaphorically and literally in the cases of Goyette and Wickenheiser, who carried the flags for the Canadian team in the 2006 and 2014 Olympic games, respectively.

The five Hall of Famers are joined by 19 others, including three players who combined for four golden goals against USA along the way to Canada’s 14 gold medals in World Championship and Olympic competition.

- Nancy Drolet scored overtime winners in the 1997 and 2000 World Championships. The 1997 winner was Drolet’s third goal of the game.

- Caroline Ouellette scored 1:50 into overtime to settle the 2012 World Championship.

- Marie-Philip Poulin forced a fourth period with a last-minute goal in the 2014 Olympics and then scored the winner in overtime.

While the United States has dominated World Championship competition since 2008, winning eight of nine tournaments, Canada has saved its best for the Olympics, earning gold in 2010 and 2014.

Canada lost to the Americans in a shootout in 2018.

It was the sixth of eight consecutive Olympic and World gold-medal games that were settled........
