Hockey: Martlets' Ward awaits Olympic team announcement

Just a reminder: The roster of Canada's Olympic women's hockey team will be announced at 3 p.m. ET (12 PT) on

Canada has been carrying 23 players and has to get down to 21. McGill Martlets defender Catherine Ward seems to have nailed down her spot. During the U.S.-Canada game last Wednesday, Hockey Night in Canada's Cassie Campbell-Pascall, moonlighting for TSN, stated she felt veterans Becky Kellar and Gillian Ferrari were battling it out for the last spot on the blue line. Ferrari was released on Sunday.

Fellow Martlets Charline Labonté and Kim St. Pierre are part of the three-headed hydra in goal along with the bright young hope Shannon Szabados, who plays in the Alberta colleges men's league. Peter Smith is an assistant on Melody Davidson's coaching staff.

The Canadian roster is composed of five members who played at the CIS level, including right wing Jayna Hefford (Toronto Varsity Blues) and defender Colleen Sostorics (Calgary Dinos).
