SASKATOON, Sask. – Hockey Canada has announced the addition of Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont./Markham, CWHL) to Team Canada’s roster for the 4 Nations Cup, Nov. 6-10 in Saskatoon.

Bach was one of 59 players invited to participate in Canada’s National Women’s Team Fall Festival in Dawson Creek, B.C., in September. The camp was the first step in the evaluation and development of players for the 4 Nations Cup and other short-term international competitions this season.

Bach was selected third overall by Markham in the 2018 Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) Draft. In her rookie campaign with the Thunder, she is tied for third in team scoring with four points, including three goals, in six games. Bach is a three-time medallist with Canada’s National Women’s Development Team at the Nations Cup, winning gold twice (2015, 2016) and adding a silver medal in 2017. Bach also won a gold medal with Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team at the 2014 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship.

Canada will travel to Prince Albert, Sask., to play its lone pre-tournament game on Nov. 4 against Finland. It opens preliminary-round play Nov. 6 against Sweden, and will also face the United States (Nov. 7), and Finland (Nov. 9) at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon.

The bronze- and gold-medal games will be played Saturday, Nov. 10; the full schedule can be found at HockeyCanada.ca. Full-event ticket packages, as well as day passes beginning at $30, can be purchased at HockeyCanada.ca/Tickets.

Since the debut of the 4 Nations Cup in 1996, Canada’s National Women’s Team has won gold on 14 occasions (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014) and brought home a silver medal eight times (1997, 2003, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017).
