The focus is mostly on the Olympics, but having world championships, even in Olympic years, is important.
The national director of Hockey Canada’s women’s teams, Gina Kingsbury, is set to work hard for 2022, which promises to be an especially busy one.
If we want our game to rise on the international stage, we must continue to have visibility and play at the highest level. It is important to have a world championship every year.
