Canada has 10 first-time Olympians on the roster, several of which were left off the team that placed second in PyeongChang. That list includes two goaltenders and five members of the defence corps.
Veterans include Poulin and Johnston, who will be playing in their fourth Games, as well as Spooner, Larocque, Daoust, and Jenner, who are making their third appearances, respectively.
According to Hailey Salvian of The Athletic, Victoria Bach, Meaghan Mikkelson and Kristin O'Neill were the final cuts.
A three-time Olympian, Mikkelson shared this message on Twitter:
