Agosta, Canada Ready For Olympics
Agosta is entering her fourth Winter Olympics.
The prolific scorer was also selected as an assistant captain, and will be counted upon for leadership at the Games.
“Right now my focus is being here and focusing on how good I can be as a leader,” Agosta said in a Hockey Canada article. “Bringing out the best in everybody and taking the younger ones under my wing, making them comfortable and confident.”
Marie-Philip Poulin was named captain.
Canada opens the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics Sunday, February 11 against the Olympic Athletes from Russia.
Canada will then face Finland on February 13, and the USA February 15 to complete round robin play.
In 15 career Olympic Games contests, Agosta has 15 goals and 23 points for Canada. As the longest standing Canadian hockey Olympian, Agosta still believes she has a lot to contribute to her country on the ice.
“I still have so much more to give, and after this year, with the team we have and the bond we have, to see how much I have improved as an individual, and to see where I am at, I can”t see hanging up the skates anytime soon.”
