For the second time in her illustrious hockey career, Jocelyne Larocque is an Olympic champion.
Canada’s women’s hockey team defeated the United States 3-2 in the gold medal game at the 2022 Winter Olympics last month in Beijing.
The 33-year-old Ste. Anne native, who is a lock for induction in the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame once her playing career is over, owns three Olympic medals (two gold & one silver), eight World Championship medals (two gold, six silver & one bronze), helped the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs capture the NCAA Women’s National Championship in 2008 & 2010 and won the Clarkson Cup in 2018 with the Markham Thunder.
Larocque took part in a ceremonial face-off prior to the start of Winnipeg Jets game against the Tampa Bay Lightning Tuesday night at Canada Life Centre as both teams and the 12,925 in attendance saluted the veteran National Team blueliner for winning her gold medal in Beijing.
