Canada’s Marie- Philip Poulin is the only player in women’s ice hockey to have scored in three consecutive Olympic finals, each time against the USA. In the first of those matches, at Vancouver 2010, she put her side 2-0 up in a game they went on to win, and in the second, at Sochi 2014, she struck a golden goal as Canada retained the title 3-2. Though she maintained her scoring run at PyeongChang 2018, putting the Canadians 2-1 ahead in the second period, Poulin could not prevent the Americans from completing a shootout victory.
“I started out figure skating but I didn’t like it, and I got into hockey instead,” explained Marie-Philip Poulin, who has made a name for herself as a gifted attacker blessed with outstanding vision and an ability to play in any position.
The girl from Beauceville in Quebec originally cut her teeth playing for boys’ teams. In 2008, she became the leading scorer in the history of Canada’s U-18 women’s team, grabbing 31 goals in 17 matches and helping her country win silver at the IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World U-18 Championships on home ice in Calgary.
